Serrator, I still don't understand your concern with RP, you seem to be either antagonized by or defending rules that don't really exist anyway. Other than the rule, better called a principle, that the image appear representative of what the human eye might see. Perhaps that is too ambiguous or subjective for your tastes.

Aside from that, I disagree with your technical assessment of dynamic range. My sense, informed only by general reading and not engineering background, is that DR is a much tougher nut to crack than noise reduction. For one, even if the sensor manages to capture a wider dynamic range, there will still be the problem of how to best map that range into the narrower range that the usual display devices can attain. That is where the disagreements or differences in preference lie, and that is not going to be resolved by a different sensor technology.
