Measuring something with this many variables is a nightmare.
As you suggest, it's not so much the improved results in everyday
shooting that is significant (although the dumb shooter who doesn't
notice that his shutter speed is too low may get a lot more keepers),
but as you point out its the fact that you can go where you normally
wouldn't - like handholding above 500mm at 50mm speed.
