JPEG XR

What will happen to JPEG XR?  This seems like a decent upgrade to JPEG.  About the only thing that would get me to shoot RAW is higher bit-depth.  The other benefits are minor, IMO, and RAW comes with some huge negatives (for me): large file sizes, slow workflow, proprietary (and transient) formats, etc.

The big question is whether Microsoft will try to enforce patents (and/or royalties) on it.  That will doom it to failure from the start.
