"True raw histogram" can't use an ambiguous conversion that input colour profiles offer, and it's not about how raw data looks to an eye after it has being rendered through a profile and clipped by a tone curve. True raw histogram should "expose" the exposure space directly.

Here's a "really raw" histogram, left-center panel:

All I did to the raw image array from the file was to scale the data so it would fill the histogram range.

Ummm... I scale the histogram range, I don't touch raw data.

this is a locomotive headlight producing saturated pixels, but there aren't enough of them to make a detectable spike on the right side of the histogram

To make the spike visible, you can add an option to use log scale on the Y axis (I clearly see it is the headlight )
