Well those non destructive edits can be stored directly in a DNG file, So theoretically at least, those edits could be accessed by any piece of software that fully supported the DNG format.

I don't think that will work.  Lightroom stores your edits as a list of instructions that tell the image rendering engine (if that's the right terminology) what to do in order to make the image look the way you adjusted it.  Without the engine itself the instructions are meaningless, and of course no other company has access to Adobe's engine.
