Let's take an example to explain what I do not understand. Let's say my camera measures F2.0, 1/50th and ISO 800 (no over- or under exposure). I want to ETTR so I set my camera to F2.0, 1/50th and ISO 1600.

You are missing something.  You expose as much as you can given your current ISO  not going to higher ISO's.  This is more for IS lenses (Canon image stabilization) or just using the longest exposure time that will get you the result you want.
