DNG, Are we REALLY not throwing any information away with DNG?

... over RAW?

I 've done a lot of reading, it all comes down to this.
-12% to -15% file size.

Sorry, but my camera files are not 20% small, but more like 13% smaller. (1ds ii). Maybe different cameras have different ration, i dont know.

Also I am not convinced about the futureproof of DNG over CR2. For me CR2 are as futureproof as they can be. Nobody will abandon them.

Smaller size is indeed an advantage. But do we really keep ALL the info there is? not WB applied, no sharpening, no NR, nothing nothing nothing just like original RAW?
