IMO, the most logical thing would be to have a slider called "gain" which would be a purely linear treatment of the RAW data, and along with that controls for contrast, shoulder, knee, etc, for the rendered tone curve.

Another good reason for Nikon shooters to use Capture NX2, that's exactly how they implement it

Except for calling gain 'Exposure Compensation', of course If 'gain' is too hard to swallow, I like gollywop's 'Exposure Multiplier' next best. Of course we are now a hair away from 'Exposure Compensation'...

My vote would be for the control to be named "Scalar Badness" to imbue a visceral, macho feel.
