I understand that the XTrans sensor requires unique RAW conversion algorithms but I wonder why Fuji didn't at least use the DNG standard for RAW. At least Adobe would have a leg up on the RAW conversion instead of starting from scratch.

It's stupid that Canon/Nikon/Sony/Fuji etc all use proprietary RAW formats....at least Leica uses DNG.

That's been suggested many times, but unfortunately, it wouldn't help. DNG is a container format that would still contain the original raw data, albeit in a more readable fashion. However, they would still not be demosaiced, which is the difficult aspect wit X-Trans data..
