I'd rather count on canon or nikon for the raw support in the long
run, given the fact that adobe has the tendency of selling a new
software when a major model is about to hit the market

DNG avoids the need to upgrade software in that way. For example, here is a page about using DNG to avoid upgrading from Photoshop CS (or CS2, etc) when new cameras are launched:

It is the changes to raw formats when Canon and Nikon (and others) launch new cameras that requires new software - all raw converters (even their own) need upgrades, whether paid for or not. DNG doesn't need to change like that.
