Similar is true for the shadows. For chromes I find it important to assess the range of the image and if it exceeds the capabilit of the film deide which is more important - highlights or shadows.

In fact, that is what I do for almost every type of media unless I already know (guess) the range is compatabile... then I just meter for "average" either general-coverage reflected or incident.
