Many teachers and advisors stop short of doing sensitometry in the print stage. I recall reading where it can be used to provide "possible suggestions of paper grade to select" but ultimately the guide I was reading left the final stage up to the whim of the individual.
But I don't want to short-circuit what you are suggesting, if you intend to carry forward the study that may have been dropped by other well-respected teachers... They didn't see a value in it. But even if the final decision rests with the individual, there is value in a well-rounded theory.
