I've looked at that as an option, but the colors change from DxO to Lightroom using the embedded profile even. That part bothers me. What's your experience?

That's my experience in DXO to ACR/PS. I always do final color correction in ACR or PS. Have not really tested, but wonder if DXO's color management is off.

I started using the DXO>DNG>ACR workflow for real estate jobs so I could use the most convenient tools in each before firing up the image processor and batch processor to create the final images. So I'm not holding this up as the ne plus ultra workflow, but one combining practical advantages such as DXO lighting and lens correction with ACR's graduated filter/adjustment brush. With the D700 and now D800, the results are more than my customers need and I get the jobs done quickly. YMMV.
