In any event, MLU versus shutter delay...

Umm, there's a big difference between true MLU and the D80 0.4 second delay. With MLU, I can get the mirror up and wait up to 30 seconds (at least on my D200) before I either release the shutter or the shutter releases itself at 30 seconds. This means I can still choose the exact moment to release the shutter. On the D80, you get a delay but too bad if it releases at the wrong time. If I'm waiting for a breeze to stop, for example, for macro shooting, the simple D80 method won't necessarily help me.
