Your assertion is absurd... if it's smaller, it most certainly has been changed. Others have already pointed out some of the types of data that are not carried forward.

Not necessarily. If DNG performs a lossless compression of the sensor data, no information is lost despite the fact that the resulting file takes lesser space on the hard-drive.

Go back and read all the posts... it does not preserve in-camera data, data that is unique to each manufacturer. IF is a dicey word since your IF is NOT what they do. Add to that that as sensors and technology develop, they are constantly adding more and more data (data includes more than light values), the DNG (if standardized) will become obsolete..
