Q14 is only really of value when you have a bunch of short read Q30s you can pin to the scaffold.
Maybe, but once de novo assembly is really available with a reasonable price, I believe it is the way to go. Ever wonder where those "copy number variants" are in a genome. It might be hard to believe that where they are is not important.
