Tech/hardware wise, is there anything preventing Roku from updating the Streaming Stick+ and the Ultra to support HDR10+ and Dolby Vision? If it's possible, what's the actual likelihood of that happening?

Don't know. Technically, perhaps not. I think it is more a question as to whether HDR10+ becomes more ubiquitous than just a PRIME VIDEO streaming option that today is only support on a very select number of Samsung TV models.

I am more worried about if Roku's choice of dynamic HDR formats (Dolby Vision) fails, it'd be nice if they could just do HDR10+ via an update. If a TV can do DV, it must be able to technically do HDR10+.
As much as a fan i am of Roku and being one their 1st top 100 customers that bought their early devices. I have to say that the Amazon Fire TV has a leg up on Roku when it comes to new formats. Their devices support HDR10+ and Dolby Vision w/out breaking the bank on a Apple TV box.
