The general way is to compute the glare by arythmetic solver - just compute glare value of X,Y and Z (or may be, glare value by spectrum bands) based on known target values. When the glare value is computed correctly, the profile dE will be minimum. > Is it reasonable to assume that flare decreases in line with everything > else if the exposure is reduced ? Yes, It's reasonable. But we shouldn't forgot the sensor bias. The bias is the constant part of error at the darks.
