In addition to the lossy approach, you can also resize the images in terms of pixels and make your D800 DNGs more like D700 DNGs. You get a reduction in noise, as well as file size, but the files are linear DNGs, meaning they're demosaiced. You can still perform all the usual raw operations on them, though. It's an interesting option to have, and I've used it when e-mailing raw files to someone where having the original, larger size didn't matter.
