If I understand what you're saying, Nikon and Canon have enough clout to guarantee that software developers will support their proprietary formats, so for them DNG isn't so necessary. Smaller players, on the other hand, depend on DNG because there isn't enough demand for their individual formats. But collectively they do form a large group, making demand for DNG large enough to warrant software developers to continue to support it.

Yup!

An additional factor for software developers is that Adobe's supply of a free DNG Converter means that there are a lot of DNGs (I suspect most of them) that come from conversion rather than in-camera.
