Why? The canon sRaw is not true RAW as it throws away information to make the file smaller.

The D800 has many options that makes the file smaller keeping all the information intact.

What full sensor options for smaller sizes other than pre-baked 8-bit JPEGs, does the D800 have?

The point of reduced RAW format is to still be able to shoot full sensor, still retain most of the adjustability advantages of RAW, but not be burdened with such large file sizes in processing.
