If i understand your question it asks if it's better to up the ISO 2X (or whatever) in camera or bump exposure 2X in processing. I'm thinking you might be the one that tells the rest of us. I would bet though that adjustments are better made in-camera.

Also, ETTR might be a popular topic in forums but I've yet to see any practical application for it in photography.

But I agree, if all you are going to do in post is simply drop exposure across the entire scene, then all ETTR has given you is at best a little more flexibility in post, and at worst an extra step you didn't need to do.

Absolutely true. When going from raw to JPEG, one will need to do a judicial adjustment of the tone curve anyway, because one has to decide what information to toss. Simply dropping the exposure value alone most likely isn't going to do that in a meaningful way.
