Anybody done the test yet?

A quick trip to the bench, Philips TL950 overhead fluorescent, Kodak 18% at 45 degs to the camera, SD10 on AWB, SPP 3.5.1 color picker:

-0.3 EV gave RGB = 107

0.0 EV gave RGB = 117, converted to JPEG, Adobe color picker gave 116, HSB = 0 deg, 0%, 45%

+0.3 EV gave RGB = 133

A statistically insignificant test, but an indication nevertheless . . .

(sorry about those numbers but the OP had numbers in it; anyone played the "Real World" card yet?).

SD9, SD10, EF-500, GH1.
