Am hoping there will be a bit of new hardware help with resisting portrait highlight blowout.

The general solution to blow outs is under exposure.

Personally I would also like some "hardware" to extend the dynamic range several stops higher. Such things do exist, but they are complex and therefore, in practice, would limit the number of pixels.

The simplest solution is the one used by older Fuji cameras, having two detectors per pixel. The drawback of that solution is that you get an increased noise in the mid tones. Not good.
