This is a very valid statement

I believe your camera JPEG is closest to the "Raw Image", if all in-camera settings are set to their lowest value. Also, the dynamic range of a camera like the D800 is significantly higher than can be displayed by the histogram. To recover as many data as possible and to minimize noise in the shadows I believe it is wise to over-expose by up to one stop. The overexposure is then corrected in PP, but you still have the data points.
