Informative post, thank you!  There's a thread somewhere on this forum about how Lightroom 4 has breathed some new life into E-1 and E-3 files, and that the results are quite noticeable.  So the question is: is any camera really obsolete if RAW processing algorithms continue to evolve and improve??

It depends on what you mean by "obsolete".  A camera doesn't cease taking the kinds of pics it always did when a better camera comes out, and, as you note, improvements in software may even improve the pics it takes.

By the way, DxOMark's measurements are based on the RAW file, not the processed file, so they represent the max the equipment is capable of, not what people actually get out of it.  So, yes, there is a limit to what software can do, and DxOMark measures that limit.
