Dear Sir:

The culprit here may be not Adobe themselves, but other parties.

Adobe software records and reads DNG files according to the published documentation, third-party software may implement the specifications only partially, hence there are incompatibilities.

You can find the same problems with JPEGs and TIFFs as soon as they are recorded according to specifications but in a less popular format. I remember many cases when CMYK JPEGs were displayed erroneously, from black screen to acid colours, depending on the software. Also, a lot of applications dealing with TIFF / JPEG fail to comply with colour management routines, displaying wrong colours as a result.
