what about DR?

and I hope, upon the D300 update, Nikon can minimize sky noise at
base ISO. I'd like to shoot with both camps. Maximizing the merits of
both sensor sizes.

Matt, since you're a landscape shooter, I know the pixel count is relevant to you, so 21 MP sure helps.

But what about DR? This sensor is the same as the one in the 1DsIII, and its DR is not better than the one in the D3, from many tests available.

Wouldn't it be better to have a 16-18MP sensor with usable 13 stops of DR, then a 21 MP at 11stops?
