The CPUs in today's cameras are rather powerful and I don't think it would be very difficult to have them line up multiple exposures and combine them in a RAW file that would give you additional room for tone-curve adjustment when you develop them in your RAW converter later on.

Given that this takes minutes on a quad core PC with 16gb mem, and you need to do manual fixes to the result before it is saved, I simply don't see any kind of good result coming from in camera addition of this... Just like HDR, panorama or even art filters.

Perhaps you are right but it's amazing at what speed digital cameras can work on the specific tasks for which their CPUs and firmware are optimized. Consider, for example, the speed at which they are able to turn RAWs into jpegs in burst mode or, with reduced resolution but still higher frame rate, in video or when feeding the EVF/LCD.
