Ok so I chewed on this thought most of the morning and I don't see the point you are trying to make.

The technique doesn't really matter, spot, incident, sunny 16, all simply provide a reference point.

From whatever reference point we have, with an understanding what it has just told us, we need to decide where we want to place that tone or those tones on the curve.
