If it's 3000 images, a "little bit of extra time" adds up pretty quickly.
Can you really name me a circumstance where the need for great IQ (specifically, high levels of detail and low noise), a tight timescale and 3000 images all collide?
It isn't in wedding photography - stellar IQ really isn't a deal-breaker there (I suppose it might be if two photographers were getting married!) and it isn't photojournalism, so what Real World situations exist where my kind of workflow isn't an option?
Bear in mind that at low ISOs, and depending on the intended use of the files, none of that "extra" work might actually be necessary.
750 triathletes each swimming, biking, running, and crossing the finish line.
You could argue the need/definition for great IQ, but as you yourself said, if it's worth doing, do it right. So if there are options that are comparable without PP, that's a big time saver for a better result.
