To my eyes the soften and harden controls relate to the pulling of highlight and shadow portions of the characteristic curve toward the midpoint (softening) or the extremes (hardening).

I agree. Highlight Soft creates roll-off in the shoulder, while Shadow Soft creates roll-off in the toe. Together they create a nice S curve.

Not sure how DPreview produces their dynamic range graphs, but I would love to see one for Soft (-2) highlight and shadow.
