[D]igital is to the point where it is superior . . .

One advantage that I find huge that you didn't mention is the ability to change ISO at will. As I mentioned in the previous thread, I've had to shoot a lot of performances that have low-light and action combinations, where ISO of 3200 is quite useful. These scenes are interspersed with dramatic scenes with brighter lighting and slower motion, where I'll flip back to an ISO of 800. I'd hate to have to go back to the days where we'd have to switch ISOs by switching physical rolls of film. Parenthetically, I shot some ISO 1600 film, and the quality of digital images at 1600, or even 3200 is far better.
