For stacked astronomy data capture that may be useful, I'm not sure
about normal daylight hand held still photos though. Or high contrast
scenes needing dynamic range.

"per unit area"

In other words, if you know what results you want to get then you can
adjust your measurement to get those results.

Pay attention John, it *does* affect the comparison.

Uh, OK. So why not compare cameras with the same size sensors but different
numbers of pixels?
