I think you see raw as less simple than jpg.  Given current software, raw is, if anything, simpler.

Five years ago, one needed to worry about lens distortion and CA when processing raw. Not any more - Modern software handles that automatically, just as the in-camera processor does.

Raw avoids problems added by the in-camera JPG processor, so your workstation can use its own processing capabilities, not limited by the "we need to get this done before the next  shutter press" constraints of the in-camera processor.  Simpler, cleaner, more flexible.

The only potential cost is some storage space (which is pretty trivial compared to the other stuff I have on my workstation) and probably a bit slower burst speed.  I consider the tradeoff worthwhile.
