Obvious question ...

Actually, as I've stated elsewhere, my camera warns me when I'm about to overload its sensitivity. It does that in realtime, allowing me to adjust shutter speed and aperture down until I've reached an exposure that won't overload its sensitivity. I think this is the direction things will continue to move in.

Let's think about this a bit. This is what you do when you're about to overload its sensitivity.

What do you do when you are about to undershoot sensitivity?  Undershooting sensitivity has consequences, too, including noise and loss of shadow detail.
