Film versus DSLR dynamic range

A number of posts in recent threads state that film has more dynamic range than DSLR sensors. Actually, these measurements ( http://www.clarkvision.com/imagedetail/film.vs.digital.summary1.html ) clearly show the contrary, with slide film having about 5 stops dynamic range, print film about 7 and a DSLR getting to 10 stops. I would be interested in understanding on what are the statements about the low dynamic range of DSLRs based?

Thanks,

ALP
