One risk is raw conversion to dng.  The original raws, if embedded,
cannot then be extracted or detached.  Thus, you'll lose your original
raw file and carry a larger dng.  The workaround is to convert to dng
without embedding and keep the original raw (if you want it).
Obviously, this shouldn't prevent your use of 1.2.
