People keep claiming that but I have yet to confirm that a hardware
raid does actual checksumming as opposed to just healing bad blocks.
But yes, they might :)

That was my intent. Checksumming at the sstable level would allow
detection of corruption, and regular repair and read-repair would
provide self-healing.
