Blender export glTF textures as DDS

Can Blender export textures as DDS into a glTF file? I am writing up some documentation and I want to establish the modeling pipeline for people. I need to know if they can set up glTF materials with DDS textures in Blender before export, or if they must convert the texture files in my application and resave the model.

Blender can’t export DDS in glTF files, no. For a bit more context, see:

Okay. I am giving a little live tutorial to NASA next week, and I must say this is the one aspect of the pipeline where I feel like I have a hard time being confident in my recommendation. I think glTF is still the best solution overall, but this is the one issue that seems really awkward.
