But I still have one point that I don't understand, why the measured ISO is different in DxOMark for ISO160 and ISO200? I knew that for E-PL1, for example, ISO100 and ISO200 share the same measured ISO. So, what's the difference in these two cases?

The Olympus-cameras write exactly the same RAW-levels in ISO100 and 200 when the same exposure is used. The RAW-converter is responsible to apply a tone-curve that leads to the correct brightness for each ISO.

The usual way of the "digitally pushed" ISOs is to multiply the output of the ADC to get the desired ISO and write the result in the RAW-file.
