By inference...

Agreed. I always thought it strange that the noise levels were
similar for these two cameras at the pixel level. I assumed that
either the 5D was not as good at collecting light per unit area or
that the 20D was applying more NR to the RAW data. Based on this
thread, I suppose it is the former.

5D is only as good as the 20D/30D.

40D is as good as the D3 (Christian's results)

D3 is 2x more efficient in light collection than 5D (John's results)

40D is better than the 5D. And this was Michael Reichmann's claim as well, WITHOUT all that rigorous testing. But many 5D owners shot him down. Isn't that funny?
