To be quick,
* WMAL should be buried by now
* FLAC is kind of king of the hill in terms of support; ALAC is likely #2 since Apple pushes it
* ALAC is not checksummed
* WavPack does have this hybrid mode, if you want the lossy + correction file format
* OptimFrog and WavPack support floating-point.
* OptimFrog is very slow and probably the least used of these
* You forgot Monkey and TAK.
* You would have found all this by searching the forum (I guess that is sort of a "lossless compression" by itself).
