>1. They are generated by the camera and part of the "digital negative" 

THM is not a negative file. RAW file is...

Yes. You can find all Exif/makernote data in CRW.

Note than in some camera model (my Dynax 5D for example), the THM file only content the standard Exif data, not the makernotes... My MRW raw file has all metadata.

This is why digiKam forget THM file to download. Also, i think than THM can be confuse for end users. THM are not valid pictures to use like a photograph for editing and publishing.
