Isn't that why these SDK exists? Whose fault is it if the software companies don't want to use the SDKs...

I believe the NEF SDK does not provides access to much of the proprietary metadata, only white balance - and the normal non-proprietary metadata (exposure, location etc).

Or has that changed?

But if you want to have the starting point be Nikon's conversion - shouldn't you be using a Nikon RAW converter and convert everything to TIFF before doing final edits on your pixel editor of choice?

Why should one be obliged to use Nikon raw conversion?  What benefit would that offer over other companies offering better raw conversion?
