Could you briefly explain why dynamic range for smaller sensors

look @ SNR beyond deep shadows,

Already accomplished. As you might have seen, I expanded my coverage of that subject in the OP of this thread.

Anders likes to shoot black cats in lightless rooms

What makes you think that? Got any examples you'd like to point to?

- but in a real life 99% of your details are above that.

What we are talking about in this thread is images rather than real life. Given that, what exactly is your claim? That 99% of the details of the image (exactly how do you define "details"; you obviously need to quantify it to make your claim meaningful) are above what (again you need to quantify the criterion here) for what camera at what ISO setting with what light distribution within the scene and with the highlights at what distance from the clipping point?

PS: and when it comes to DR, he dislikes to illustrate bigger sensor with Sony APS-C 16mp @ base ISO... always using some poor Canons to beat.

Not at all. See here for example:
