As for the topic at hand, I say, to each, his or her own. Everyone knows how they work best, or what their clients do or do not want, and they should work accordingly.
To the OP, I say shoot in RAW and see how it impacts your workflow. If you like it, stick with it.
Personally, I shoot only in RAW and always will. In my own experience, RAW files contain more information, giving you more to work with when you need it.
I don't mind if it sometimes means more time spent in post. Photography is my passion, every single aspect of it, staging, shooting, PP, printing, all of it. The world melts away and I'm a happy person.
