I would think Prores LT would be the one to go with - the proxy version you would loose info.
The higher data rate is because each frame of you video is turned into an i frame (i.e. complete picture information in one frame) rather than relying on the use the picture information of multi frames to make up the image in one frame (this can be explained better- but it's late in the UK)
When each Frame of your video is an i frame - editing and exporting become less stressful on the computer processor- so although more hard disk space is taken up - and a higher data rate is needed. the processor has less work to do- and as FCP is processor intensive this end up being a good thing.
