True. I was assuming something more significant than what would normally be considered a specular highlight in most cases. Thanks for pointing out that the area of the bright spots is very relevant.

Iliah Borg and rhlpetrus did some multiple exposure experiments some time ago of high DR images with normal areas of outside-the-window highlights against inside shadow regions. I think their results showed a lens DR range that is more than Canon's current cameras can capture, but that is within the capability of Nikon's D800 and D600 at base ISO.
