Not to open any sore wounds, but it is interesting that the other poster still arrived at the correct settings to maintain highlights, even though he understood it as reducing exposure. Just sayin'

You do realise that the poster applied highlight compression/recovery to the ISO100 to bring the highlights back down.  If he simply just pushed the ISO100 6 stops the highlights would be blown too.  He had already blown out the highlights at ISO6400 so there was nothing there to recover there.

If the poster really wanted to recover the highlights at ISO6400 then he should have preserved them in the first place.  Either that, or start with a lower ISO that doesn't blow the highlights at the same shutter and aperture.
