Then we must be telepathically linked, because I'm experiencing the same
dream.

As you noted, the LS-8000ED seems to see shadow detail that isn't obvious on
the light table.  I have a habit of using the Curves in PS to locate the
absolute darkest and lightest points of a scan, and then set my black and
white points to those; I was very surprised when doing this on Velvia slides
with the 8000ED to see that there was usable detail in what I thought were
totally blocked shadows.  As a result I tend to crank up the extreme low end
of my scanned images after setting the black and white points so that I can
make the shadow detail a tiny bit easier to see on the monitor.  The only
thing I've noticed is that if you do this more than just the right amount,
you may see traces of banding in extremely high contrast regions.  But the
banding I've seen is usually too mild to justify a rescan with one CCD.
