Let's make sure we're differentiating between raw capture and JPEG 
printing.  I won't argue against raw capture as the best way to get all 
the detail available nor that editing is best done with all the dynamic 
range possible.  That gives us the opportunity of compressing the range 
and moving it up or down into what can be shown on paper.

However, when it comes to printing the final result, the dynamic range 
of a print is typically in the range of 5-6 stops.  The printing process 
is simply not capable of reproducing the tonal range that exists even in 
the JPEG.
