And of course, there's no such thing as highlight 'recovery'; it's only a matter of knowing where the numbers really are.

Well, there is some, although it is mainly guesswork and masking the issues of "hard clipping", not true recovery. One should definitely not blow any important highlights. But in many harsh-lit scenes where we happen to be more interested in the shadows, the hottest highlights are not all that important - just the artifacts of hard digital clipping are bothersome. In such cases, using "highlights recovery" can make a difference, and LR4 was a big game-changer in this regard. RT4 offers several different recovery methods.
