So, how does 'total light' relate to 'highest image quality? Simply because it tells you, so far as your operation of the camera controls are concerned, how much noise or grain (depending on digital or film) will be in the image. And in the end, all else being equal, noise or grain is the major metric of image quality.

Oh wow, I see I haven't kept up with the times. Last year in the fantasy world where all else is equal resolution was the metric du jour of the technobabblers, a couple of months ago it was dynamic range, now you tell us it is noise. Any chance that you guys will ever consider subject matter, other than test charts and brick walls, and composition as being of some importance?

Nice argument in favour of Lomography. If it's all the subject and the quality of the equipment doesn't count for anything, then this whole site is a dead duck.
