The more I see such comparisons of two programs, the more I doubt their value, 
when claims are that the same (limited) tools are used. Here we see it 
already, in that DT has 2 'olympus' baseline curves (and 10-20 predefined 
ones). It's clear that LR does apply a similar tone curve, but it's not stated 

So just in this simple example we have two points of discussion: basecurve and 
highlight reconstruction...

If it were that simple, we wouldn't have the discussions about importing 
editing instructions between programs. But in practice, each program has its 
own tweaks, and its way of doing things. From what I see here, LR does a few 
things automatically that need to be done "by hand" in DT. And that kind of 
thing is nice when you start, but tends to limit what advanced users can do.
