Efficient JPG+RAW management in Lightroom

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Petition for proper RAW+JPEG support

Typically I only want to develop 20% of my pictures in detail. The rest of them I do feel fine without some changes or it isn't worth it to spend some time.

That is why I typically capture JPG+RAW with my camera, so that automatic JPG processing is already performed within camera.
--> If Lightroom would have a similar efficient way to automatically process RAW files like the camera does, I would be fine to only capture RAW in camera. Using presets in camera raw is not fine, because I need to spend time to select the right preset.

Now, because I do have two files for the same picture, I want to see the JPG in Lightroom first. It is no option to display JPG and RAW side-by-side as now I need to do tagging twice if I do not decide on JPG or RAW first.

At some point in time I want to select if I want to leave RAW or JPG as original file - the not used files shall be cleaned up by Lightroom in order to save disk space.

Do you (Adobe) have something in feature pipeline to improve this process?

Sounds way too complicated. You can have your RAWs look like the back-of-camera LCD. I gave up in-camera jpg years ago, thanks to LR being so great with Camera Calibration and batch processing.  If you aren't happy with the included Calibration for your camera, there are some steps to set up, but then forever after you can just export jpgs from LR to another folder (out of the catalog, in my case, and then viewed with faststone).

Here are a couple of links just to get you started:
