What is this tellurium sensitization I have been hearing about, and how does it differ from two electron sensitization/etc? Is it better? Is it completely different and incomparable?

IIRC, it's part of the same process (double electron sensitization). It's an additive to the emulsion to enable better sensitivity. There's supposedly one further level of sensitization that wasn't achieved with Vision 3.

So if it was used along with the two electron sensitization, it would be like tri electron sensitization?
If that's true, Kodak should do something similar. I'm sure it would be quite fascinating to see the results of such a film stock..

Well, they would if they discovered a way to do so. There's a team of researchers that are constantly working on improving color films at Kodak, and I'm sure a similar research team is in place at Fuji.

They tend to work on improving faster films first, hence the long reign of older, slower stocks like EXR 5245, which was around over a decade before it was finally replaced with a Vision2 version.
