2-step downsizing

Tony Kuyper, the popularizer of the luminosity masking techniques, suggests a 2-step workflow when it comes to downsizing (scroll down to the "Web Sharpening" section). I'll have to test it whether a straightforward raw conversion + resizing in the export settings is much less optimal than this 2-step approach in PS -- I suppose the comparison is bound to be subjective since you're sharpening twice and your PS sharpening settings (and technology) are bound to be incomparable to the ones used in your raw converter (AND you perform a highly localized sharpening technique that's much more refined than what raw converters can do at the moment), thus favouring this technique.

You mentioned a large mega-pixel file, and Jeff Schewe also endorsed (endorses?) that approach.
