Why can't Adobe and Nikon work to have LR/CC/PS process Nikon color profiles?

Simon - I don't know whether Adobe reads some proprietary data but in my experience it is certainly not white balance. I'm currently shooting with a D810. When I compare the initial WB setting in Lightroom for a NEF file, it is always off by about + 150/250 from the reading in Capture NX-D. This is particularly noticeable with flash shots where the difference is always over 200. Of course, NX-D could be the software that is off but I doubt it since it picks up the other D810 settings that Lightroom doesn't.

I'm pretty sure Adobe and other third parties do read the white balance.  However, the way white balance is defined, it is open to interpretation about how one processes the raw to that white balance.
