APUGers that know more than I, please correct me if I'm wrong. When I shoot chromes, I place in Zone VII for texture. As for color neg film, I think density is created with dye instead of clumps of silver, so it's easier to bring highlights back. If you print your own, you can burn a bit. One issue you might face is color shift on the print. If you scan your color negs, you can do an HDR version of a scan by doing one scan for shadows and one for highlights. If you highlights are blown out in your chromes, there's nothing you can do to retrieve the highlights.
