Apparently Christian Buil has done quantitative measurements now of

indicating even better performance than my measurements had indicated.

But he concludes that the Nikon RAWs aren't really raw. Quoted from his test:

"It is tragic to see that Nikon solved the problem of thermal signal by a digital processing of the RAW files (i.e. NEF files do not contain true raw data). This processing can surely meet the daytime users and the high performance for main application is evident. But by repeating the same mistake made on the D70 and the D200 (equipped with a CCD) on the news Digital SLR Nikon probably divorces once more with the astronomical community."
