I'll agree with you that space is important, especially if you copy everything on a smartphone. That is why I keep everything as uncompressed audio. Huh? Well, mp3 is not the most effiency audio format. 256kbps mp3 is like a 128kbps AAC or ogg file. But what if you change your phone or music player? The iPhone don't play ogg. So what are you gonna do? Rerip your ogg to AAC, and have double the compression artifact? Use mp3 and waste some space on your limited device? Why not just keep the "lossless" on your computer and reencode it to your hearth content? For me, that's THE reason to keep a lossless copy. That is also why I keep all my picture as RAW file, so that I can re export them all I want to any format I desire. Hard drive are so cheap these day... You don't need to put that kind of file on a SSD.
