Exposure control in a raw developer: misnomer?

The scene luminescence in this shot in Antelope Canyon was actually much brighter. I don't care. I don't want a perfectly exposed scene.

This scene was also brighter. I also didn't care.

This next scene was darker. Still don't care.

Scene luminescence only matters in that how it affects your ISO, shutter speed and aperture values. Do you care about noise. Do you care about subject matter motion. Do you care about depth of field. A lot of the time the goal is not to perfectly and mathematically accomplish something.

I'd also point out that all of ISO, aperture and shutter speed affect rendered brightness.
