This is a non-issue for those who shoot raw. Since exposure depends upon the f-stop and shutter speed only, shoot raw in manual mode, apply any exposure compensation by changing the shutter speed or f-stop and adjust the brightness during pp if the auto ISO selected is not what you want.

I would call this a work-around but not a non-issue. Even with the new sensor, the head room in the RAW files from m4/3 cameras is still limited so you can only push and pull may be 1-1.5 stops before the IQ suffers. I simply cannot understand why some many companies cannot fully implement auto-ISO in the M-mode with Exp Comp. Is there any technical reason why this is so difficult?

I don't think that it is a technical issue.  I can recall a very spirited debate some time ago where the suggestion of EC with AutoISO in Manual was jumped on very hard by some folks who insisted that "Manual is Manual".   Old habits coupled with lots of ideology die hard.

There are other issues where progress is being held back by a "traditional" group of photographers.
