2) Do we have a guess as to the motivation to apply this irreversible "fix" to the RAW data itself rather than implementing it only in JPG?

One possible reason for this would be to lessen the number of owners seeing hot pixels and choosing to return the camera as flawed which would be costly for the company as, in addition to the replacement cost, the company might have to only take sensors cuts from the wafer that have less hot or flawed pixels. So, its all about the money.

Guys/gals, this is only on LONG exposures.... Don't get worked-up over something that the majority ppl never take advantage of.
