It would be interesting to see the same test run, after each vehicle had had its headlights very carefully and professionally aimed.

No, it really doesn't. Not once you've seen the stackup of guesses, assumptions, and apparently random, pseudoscientific numbers that have gone into the test protocol.
99.9% of drivers dont know you can aim lights.
That might be true, and even if 99.9% of drivers did know headlamps can be aimed, most of them aren't near a shop that can or will do the job correctly (though there's no shortage of shops that will claim to do it).
Unlike in the EU the US has no culture of correct aim.
This test will force manufactures to either aim them correctly or develop better lamps
Don't bet on it! You're being a lot more optimistic than realistic here.
