It seems Sony has offered uncompressed RAW in the past with the A700/900 cameras.
I am sure it is entirely within their ability to offer a compressed lossless RAW but its omission was possibly a marketing department oversight.

It's an engineering decision.

Its interesting that they can build a high tech sensor, but don't know how to use a lossless compression, and have to investigate for what has been 3 years or so already.

Yeah, but their method of lossy compression is innovative.

Can you explain?  How much loss is there with their method?

I was being facetious, but details are here:

I would say they add a creative touch to your photography  ::)
