3. Are some .CR2 files at risk of being orphaned?

The last of these is the real worry. So far Canon have been good at providing support for CR2 files (and converted CRW files) from way beck including those from non-EOS bodies like the Pro-1 and the G9. But EOS Utility support is a different matter. With the change from 2.4 to 2.5 support for numerous older EOS bodies, including 1D-series, was dropped, and if you still need to connect one to a PC then you have to find a PC running Windows XP on which to install 2.4, and you may also need a FireWire port. This is not an encouraging precedent.

Digital redundancy is a really scary proposition. JPRG and TIFF are probably the two only ones you can really trust to hang around "forever" especially JPEG because of the net.
