Generally, you're not doing those things more than once per image (well,
when downscaling a large image by a lot -- say, reducing a 100 megapixel
panorama to a web-size thumbnail -- I do it in multiple passes of no
more than 50% each, which seems to reduce jaggies and moire patterns).

With the increasing prevalence of 16:10 and even worse 16:9 screens,
that's absolutely essential.  Even with my 1920x1200 screen, vertical
space is at more of a premium than horizontal.  With a contemporary
1920x1080 or worse, the problem would be far more severe.

Now, I'm honestly a lot more concerned with high bit depth for editing
those big exposure fused panoramas :-)
