[Bill Davis] "Or have those evolved beyond folders of discrete images like I'm accustomed to working with in the annimation arena?"

No, you've got it right. That's how the BMCC camera works when DNG files are used.

[Bill Davis] "The grail in the labs has to be a video codec (or perhaps a "grading" ProRes extension) that preserves the latitude and deeper color that RAW stills have today - but in a motion stream."

That's exactly what RED developed and on which they hold a patent. Other folks simply use a log gamma profile, such as ARRI (ProRes 4444, log-c encoding).

[Bill Davis] "Quantel booth, they were doing essentially real time deep color grading in multi 4k streams via flamethrower cards like the Covid Ultra."

Quantel's internal file structure for media is based on discrete frames, unlike most desktop NLEs. So even captured media from standard video files becomes image sequences under the hood when stored to their drives. I believe Smoke/Flame and Assimilate Scratch work the same way for their internal stores.
