One problem is that there isn't agreement about which form of dynamic range to use in such a specification.
The Engineering Dynamic Range (EDR) of an individual pixel is probably the easiest to measure/provide but it's really not appropriate for comparison purposes.
This is why things like Photographic Dynamic Range (PDR) exist.
You may find the sort-able table below the chart useful as well.
