profiles with manual sampling go easy to 6dE max, while with scanin they are 
about 12 to 20 dE.

I'd be interested to have a sample that shows such a difference, as scanin
should work better than that.

I would start with a merge utility that re-calculates spectral reference for 
individual .ti3 file based on the exposure of grey patches (around neutral grey)

Right, this sounds much like HDR image merging. It is also a bit outside the
scope of the next release :-)

filters veiling glare can reach 2/3 EV easily when shooting a chart. Adding a 
black trap (hole) to a chart allows for a good estimation of veiling glare.

That would only work for a specialised chart though. I wonder if there is
a more general way of estimating flare.

Is it reasonable to assume that flare decreases in line with everything
else if the exposure is reduced ?
