I'm not buying in. Knowing what the final result will be used for is a
critical part of the work flow from the beginning, and to a large degree
this influences the decision as to the kind of file one is working on.
To say one cannot spend time to watch and remember what kind of file one
is working on, is /exactly/ the same as an automobile mechanic claiming
to bes too busy to remember whether the current work is on a Volkswagen,
or on a Mercedes, or a translator claiming to be too busy to remember
whether the target language is Spanish or Korean. Or a woodworker
claiming to be too busy to know whether the work at hand is being
constructed in Cherry wood or in Teak.
Because of the different characteristics of the different file formats,
knowing what use will be made of the final product is a critical
requirement for the workflow, and I would suggest that forgetting the
about the use of the final result during the workflow at any point
before it is delivered is someone who has not yet progressed beyond the
