I also shoot raw and understand the DR challenges you've described. I generally expose for the highlights and pull the shadows up in post from the raw files, right in-camera.

That's a global adjustment - as someone who learned photography in the darkroom, I'm accustomed to thinking in terms of localized adjustments. As a simple example, if you use flash (even just a little fill), how does the EVF show that?

I'm still wondering how working with an OVF instead of an EVF would give me any advantage in the circumstances you've described.

If you want to see the scene w/o the filter of the default processing so you can plan how you will process it.

Because the Fuji EXR sensor sees much as I wish a camera to,

I prefer not to be limited by the camera's processing choices.

Most of what I shoot is close to what will go online for printing. S-RGB is fine. What I get back in the mail looks very close to my EVF and my iMac monitor. -Guess I'm just a lucky guy.

It depends on what you shoot and how you process.  One size does not fit all.
