Usefulness of D5100 samples

I know I'm gonna get flamed by some dpr evangelists, I know I'm always complaining but this is something that I have been waiting to get off my mind for some time:

I don't care at all for the artsy-fartsy sample images of new cameras. I don't care if the guy making them is creative, can hold the camera at funny angles and still hit the button or take unusual frames.

In such a camera test I just want to see samples that illustrate as well as possible what the camera can do and what it can't do and dpr is doing a lot to not show just that.

I don't know if they should go so far as to do what e.g. Jeff Keller is doing (taking the same subjects for every camera) but at least do more landscapes, buildings and people.
Just my 2 cents.
And thank you for the preview, much appreciated!
