For years I have been using Bridge and ACR for my raw workflow. I use only DNG files and have the database turned off so the EXIF data is embedded right into the original DNG file. This means my files are 100% portable without and sidecar.

Can I do the same thing in Lightroom 4?

Well, your topic and question are different.

Can Lightroom operate without database?
No, it can't.

Can Lightroom store all adjustment info right into DNG files?
Yes, it can, you can have "portable" DNGs with Lightroom.

Of course, "portability" is limited to Adobe products
