Here you are on to something. Shooting myself an RX100Mk1, an RX10Mk1 and Mk3 besides an A99II the DR of the small sensor is certainly a limiting factor of the otherwise extraordinary cams - which show in extreme contrast situations in some of the shown photos. But for me the shadow recovery usually is less critical than the sudden clipping in the highlights. Here I see noticeable advantages of the bigger sensor cams.

Other than that I'm a big fan of maintaining shadows as shadows and dark as dark: the preservation of the scene's contrasts. IF there's something in the shadows to "reveal" then better to put some light there
