[Tony West] "Wouldn't you work that way anyway if you were dealing with that much large format footage?"

Maybe. For example, I deal with 4K ProRes files as native a lot these days on some fairly large projects. OTOH, if it's a RED job, I'll transcode or use FCPX's proxy mode. But turnaround time is a big factor and understanding how to manage the media. Letting X transcode RED files to internal proxies is time-consuming. And it doesn't do any good if the proxies are incorrectly created by someone else and then later the camera masters won't sync. Certainly not everything needs to be 4K either. So Alexa 2K and HD files are fine natively. Rewrapped FS7 files, for instance, are also something you might stay with in a native form. As with so many things, the answer is "it depends".
