Don't think you are discarding useful information.

Every facility has its own way of doing things. We like to process data allowing for mismatches and no mismatches on index reads at the same time. Some of our customers don't want mismatch (tags) data but some do. It is easy to do multiple demux runs all at the same time when you have raw data available off-line. We also keep a backup copy of all raw data (local institutional policy) as a tar archive. It is like insurance. Most of the times you don't need it but when you do it is there. We work on multi-year projects so this is a contractual requirement.
