I wish there was just a common raw format among all camera brands.

Why? A great software like Capture One Pro will convert most anyway and definitely Nikon and Canon.

Lovely conversions too.

A common RAW format is unnecessary.

Really? And have you asked C1 Team how much sweat, time, money it costs them to support the zoo? Time and effort robbed from improving conversion quality , by the way.

We may skip the common part, but openly documented and well-documented is absolutely necessary.

While right now we do not have even openly documented metadata, we need to hack even that.

Not to mention that many of the folks who design metadata formats seem to be from early 70s, judging by their data structures so well suited for magnetic tape I'm so glad I still have Knuth volumes, as it seems that was the last book on computing they ever read, but hardly finished reading

Donald Knuth? really? I thought I had been the last person to ever read his "Art of Programming" series back in college (4 decades go, almost). His TeX stuff is also excellent, still using it (w/o a "friendly" front-end).
