This is a neat idea. Blown highlights are a bigger problem than shadow noise because they are absolutely unrecoverable, while noisy shadows can be smoothed/binned post exposure. Or even during exposure! In such a hypothetic sensor, highlight pixels could reset multiple times during exposure to improve headroom, while at the same time shadow pixels could be binned to improve shadow S/N ratio (at the expense of resolution) all at once.
