Isn't it exactly this Apple has tried to accomplish with FCPX? This is one feature Apple has done right - however - I could see larger facilities wanting to for example offload the transcoding process to secondary / systems over the main editing suite. I could however see a "parallel" situation in an NLE where you have:

- RAW media (i.e. AVCIntra, H264, DVCPROHD, ProRes, R3D etc)
- Optimized media (i.e. ProRes)
- VFX media (i.e. ProRes or Uncompressed)
- Graded media (i.e. ProRes or Uncompressed)

All the media lives together and is constantly "live" and linked together. In some cases, you might want to access your RAW media in the VFX or grading stage. However, one will often want to work with a more post-friendly codec here.

I see a lot of issues working "native all the time". To many issues to be frank. I much rather have the conversion it up front than being riddled with issues further down the pipe (or suffering from lesser performance due to a hefty codec).
