A default jpg image from a camera with 15 stops of DR does not have to look any different from a camera with 10 stops of DR. The camera with higher DR just throw away more image data when producing jpg images.

OK, what does it throw it away? What are the parameters for making those decisions of what to throw away?

Having more DR does not have to make any difference when you don't need the extra DR, but when you do it can makes a hell of a difference.

I don't disagree - but are there any negative trade-offs to achieve that DR in the first place? Colour accuracy?
