Tell you what if you are willing to put your money where on what you think. You go start a shop doing processing and offer to push or pull for free and we will support you.

Ok I should also say I doubt if what you say about Taiwan is true. Why the Taiwanese are dam on kind commercial - if can split dollar note into 3 they will do it .... Singaporean will still be wondering should they convert the dollar into coins.

Push or pull can for E6 can also be done at RGB. Cost if memory serves is 50% more irregardless of 1 or more stops... I think they can push 3 max and pull 1.
Suggest people wanting to push slides should check with some bracketing. There is some evidence suggesting that 400 to 800 ie pushing one would lead to underexposure. Some compensation is needed. Try with 1/3 or 1/2 stop more exposure. Bracket to check what factor to use for your camera and way you are metering. No free lunches when pushing.
