I can't see the logic to this either. The entire point of raw is to
maximise the available detail and colour gamult for later processing. JPEG
reduces the number of available colours as well as detail. I think who
ever wrote the article belongs to the mp3 or mini disk sounds better than
cd camp.
I scan slide film in raw mode using the maxium bit depth possible. Adjust
the black and white points, apply a custom made ICC to it, apply IR
cleaning, adjust the gamma and then produce a 48 bit tiff set to adobe
colour space for printing. I would never think about JPEG other than for
email purposes!
