"That's for people who don't know any better about professional formats. H.264 should NEVER be touched natively. "

Never is one of those words which can be problematic.
While a homogenous ecosystem is long term great, particularly in SAN and archival workflows, there are industries where immediacy is key. Not having to convert to a homogenous codec is a real benefit to a large segment of the market.

I can potentially see where broadcasters, which seem to be relying on cameras which seem to be destined for H264, needing to edit right away, but ay the same token needing to maintain a footage library.

So cut your first packages native, and drop the source media on a gateway to the SAN for common denominator access for recuts and archive.
