Actually they do give you an idea of what to expect if you shoot at higher ISO settings and use the jpeg output of the camera. Which I do often during street photography at night.

Sorry but it doesn't, especially if you're evaluating for low light behaviour. You're still dealing with a well-lit scene with studio flashes that should be throwing out a reasonable spectrum of light. There's no sense of DoF/bokeh performance of the lens nor any real evaluation of dynamic range/noise response with limited available light and longer exposures, particularly in deep shadow areas. It's hardly a test for either camera and a lot of lower spec'd cameras should produce reasonable results in the environment compared to when you're shooting a scene lit by a single street lamp.
