They know just as well as we do that DNG is useless if the raw

Not true. In fact, I don't know of any raw converters that only
support DNGs if they also support the native raws of that camera.

That's pretty much what I said. No DNG support if the native format isn't supported.

Sure, sometimes the only support is in form av a DNG converter, but nevertheless you must have support for the native file.

I might care about DNG the day I use a piece of software that supports the DNG version before the native raw format. That hasn't happened yet.

Either way I find it absolutely unlikely that any of the serious companies will drop support for a format previously supported. Why spend time and money on removing a few lines of code? It's not as if they streamline the code as it is ...
