Compressed Loseless - Safe to Use?

Hi everyone,

In the past I tried to move into RAW shooting, but I was pretty shocked figuring out It's 4 times bigger than the Camera JPEG, and decided to take a step back.

I have more experience now, and I find myself post-processing more often. I am a casual photographer. I will take the Camera for a family event, take 100 photos, and cull to around 40. Out of those 40, I will pick the 5-10 I like best, and post-process them before sending to the Family. The others 30-35 photos are not bad, just not perfect (but still fun to look at when I want a walk on memory lane). I probably not going to post-process those. This raise another question. Maybe those 30-35 photos shouldn't stay RAW and I should just blindly process them to JPEG (like the Camera would do).

Also, I recently discovered the 'Compressed Loseless" RAW settings in my Fuji Camera, and it It means RAW files are only 2 times bigger compared to JPEG. That's something i can live with.

My question is, is there any reason I should stay away from Compress Loseless format before I completely sink into it? I tried view those in Faststone, Photo Mechanic and Lightroom - and all worked. But I wonder if there's a chance that I'm going to have future problems to open my compressed RAW files? (like new Compressing method that will make the old absolute or unpopular to support?)

Thanks!
