but if you expose to the right with the 16MP, dont you also increase its ability to "hang on" ? this means that both cameras can gain or lose when under the same condition, making that argument useless.

No, ETTR just says to expose as far to the right as you can (obviously observing highlight clipping), but that's applicable to all camera's.. You only do it when you can..

And in any areas of the image with higher SNR, you have more chance of hanging on to detail.. It's just good practice..
