HDR is a good technique but HDR is not for everything. The trend is still being able to exposure to the desire result and have enough room to play with highlight and shadow like in shooting Tri X, but in color. I believe we will see this kind of super DR sensor one day and able to completely ignore SNR under most conditions

You are right but you are wrong as well. Higher DR is great, but have you read about "tonality suckout" and ETTR (Exposing To The Right)? The problem when you lift the shadows the way you do is that the SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) is worse and results in "tonality suckout". That may not be a problem in all scenarios but saying that one basically can disregard under exposure without penalties like you seem to suggest is still false.

If you are interested read:
