When editing bracketed or in an other way related RAW images in PS,
you want them to be smart objects, stacked in layers.

Right now, you can only export single smart objects into single PSD files
from Lightroom.
Please add the functionality to export several RAW images
into one PSD als smart objects.

I saw a tutorial about this with Dr. Russell Brown. But I wish to see your vision.

I agree. For a brief spell in LR CC 2015 I was able to select a stack of images I wanted to apply the Mean or Median averaging to and export them all to Photoshop as a single smart object, But now it's gone again, since 16.2 I think. It's an extremely helpful tool for many kinds of photography. I think we need an expanded export setup from Lightroom to Photoshop using the smart objects features: all layers into a single smart object; individual smart object layers stacked; or individual smart object layers each in it's own document. I can think of many situations to use all three of those multiple times daily in my workflow.
