I don't see how a light meter could extend the 6-stop range as the range is a function of the AC3? And 6-stops down from full power is 1/64th, which is near useless outside. Additionally, you could skip the AC3 controller and simply use a Nikon flash in the commander mode and this gets you down to 1/128th.

6 stops down from full power would give you around F4 to F5.6 depending on distance and modifier.

If you are shooting at F2.0 the lower power settings are really useful. That's what makes the einstein such a great system. You can overpower the sun or use it as fill light at wide apertures.
