This could be a noob question for "connoisseurs", but I really would like to know and learn whether it's better to archive RAW files in their original format or convert them to DNG and then archiving them?

My thinking is that you always want the original. Who knows that if 5 years down the road someone will be able to come up with a new algorithm that can extract a better final result out of the RAWS (look at LR4 vs 2/3)? It would be a shame if it didn't work as well on DNGs, wouldn't it? Also, you can always export to DNGs later.
