I agree with this; but in many if not most cases, the compression level used
or required is greater then the lowest possible amount, ranging from level 6
to level 3 in order to get the file small enough to be an email attachment
or a web site download.

This statement I do not understand; please elaborate.  Surely, this cannot
be the case if we are talking about raw data as opposed to encoded
compressed data even at the lowest setting in which there still is some
compression of the raw data.

True--TIFF is lossless, and so it does not create artifacts.

However, if you save an image as JPEG using the lowest (least) possible
compression, the saved version will be essentially identical to the original
scan.  Scans do not contain more detail than a low-compression JPEG can
hold.
