DNG Converter: Enable JPG conversion

Lightroom is capable to convert JPGs into DNG. The DNG Converter unfortunately currently is not. Please add JPG support to the Adobe DNG Converter. Thank you very much for considering!

It seems that Lightroom is the only way to batch convert (=export) a full batch of non raw format pictures to DNG. (I don't know for CC with Bridge).
A lot of Elements users deeply regret that you can't use the Organizer to open non raw files in ACR. In recent versions of the editor, you can open several non raw files at the same time in ACR, which is good. However, you have to 'save' them individually to DNG in the limited ACR dialog version. Letting the DNGconverter do the conversion like in Lightroom would be a very good solution.

Hi, Adobe, this would be great. There's nothing like flexibility in software.

As Granny said- "You cannot make a silk purse from a sow's ear."
Briefly-
DNG files are fully un-processed RAW files with 14-bit data.
JPG files are compressed "lossy" 8-bit rendered files.
There is little point in converting JPG to DNG as you cannot recover lost quality and lost image data from the jpg.
And you can open JPG files in ACR, (from Bridge CTRL+R) but you will not have the full range of edit benefits that a 'true' raw image provides.

Please implement this adobe. Sure raws are great but I've got lots of timelapses I am doing with gopro(due to space contraints) and really this would make a huge difference to me. Surely I'm not the only one and it appears from Gunthers comments, it appears not too big a step to take in development. 

Please adobe - you've got my subscription now listen to the community. Otherwise what are we paying for
