A downside to setting brightness in post is that it can make it harder to review pictures in camera, as they are too dim (or too bright)

It seems simple enough. Instead of the camera applying the "ISO" setting to the raw data, it only applies it to the JPEG preview. Raw converters then only need to become more friendly with processing these captures. From what I've gathered, it's currently a fairly convoluted process to shoot at base ISO and push an image to ISO 3200 or thereabouts.
