Lifting 4ev from pretty dark shadows is not deep enough and the test is a random, not valid test?

Define "pretty dark". You can lift 10 stops, if you want, but if you are not near the read noise, you are wasting your time.

OK. I'm happy with my random abilities, then.

It is OK to be happy with that but not OK to criticize test data you do not understand. The extended DR of Sony/Nikon sensors is useful when you have very deep shadows (much deeper than in your test), and you really want to reveal what is hidden there. This is rarely needed but when it is, Canon sensors are worse, it is a fact.
