it does but it would be tedious work and much confusing considering that they have to cite in each review that each camera was measured according to manufacturer's specification and actual exposure capacity which might make a comparison too difficult if not impossible to obtain in time, possibly taking a year or more just to complete a full review and comparison which would already be long overdue and new cameras are around already. sites like dpreview just put one basic common denominator for fast/quick available measurement.

DPR would need to change their methodology, but tests would not take longer. The new method would consist of taking a series of photos at specific exposures, and then standardizing the final image brightness of each photo by either adjusting ISO or applying digital gain on the computer.

Granted, they are probably not going to do this, because the idea of ISO testing is so entrenched, but it would give more comparable results.
