Just an idea, not sure if it would work... Instead of using a gnd on a sunrise could you take various exposures and use the ND pushed down to meet the horizon to hold back to sky exposure then pp later ? Just wondering.

Yes, it can work. It's the same basic idea as the "black card technique," in which case you use a solid black card and remove it part way through an exposure.

Just make sure you mark on your hood the horizon position when your are composing as once you hit the shutter it all goes black. I found that out the hard way :)

I have already tried this, but if you are not very careful, you will see a shade on the horizon line.

Why not just meter for a sky shot and another for foreground and then merge.

Hmmm I think you are right, But I tried this when I wanted to shoot stars with foreground with heavy light source. In that case I had to use this method.
