Final question...

Is there any point to using the DR settings when shooting RAW or does this only affect the JPEG engine (not talking EXR here)...?

I shoot JPEG+RAW with M size, DR400 in PASM modes all the time with the F550 and eventually concluded that this was also the best overall mode for most scenes with the X10 as well.

Once you have the capture, you will have to relearn some techniques in LR to handle EXR data, but it responds well in my experience. So don't let all the complex mumbo-jumbo scare you off of your preferred work flow. If you want to tweak your settings for every shot, that is of course your choice. I use P mode as described here for all general shooting:

When shooting hockey games and concerts, I exert a bit more control over the camera in M mode, varying ISO mainly since I want an adequate shutter speed at the lowest possible ISO. That too is described in the same article, and also here:
