Yeah...the tutorial is using one RAW shot...but works the same for
bracketed exposures.

Yes, I know about HDR. Though doing it from a single RAW file is not
really the orthodox way to do it - you're not gaining any DR by doing
it, you just get a new way to map the RAW DR to the 8 bits of the
JPEG. Another way would be to simply use d-lighting, since it works
more or less the same way.

Exactly, and if you try it you will see that it can be very useful. It is rather like contrast masking but gives better results IMO.
