For shadow details and highlights jpeg's are much more recoverable than the RAW crowd would have you believe. So if I am taking a really important picture I use RAW as a precaution.

So long as there is a while spot in the picture that can be used to indicate what IS white, I find GraphicConverter adequately adjusts my jpeg's white balance. But what I find adequate may not suit others.

Not Quite. There are presets in most Raw converters for WB just like there is on your camera. You can also adjust the color temperature manually to correct it by eye if you want to. I rarely use the eyedropper and prefer to make quick adjustments by eye if they are necessary.
