This is certainly possible for compressed formats where some (eg. mrsid)
compress the data much greater whilst still keeping the data.

I also see no reason why a lossless format cannot be achieved with different
encoding algorithms. It is only important that they can be decoded to the
same data - not that they encode to to the same data. You don't really
expect all the software to share the same code do you ?

I have not checked but  I suspect lossless is actually very nearly lossless.
i.e. there are some rounding errors from the compression algorithms.
