I agree with drBill !

These days composers tend to run their preproduction demos really hot to prevent them from falling into the ,unmastered' trap when the music is up for scrutiny by directors, production, yada yada.

Come mix and dub stage delivery time, you as a mixer/composer should get in touch with the dub mixer to make sure that you are giving him the right levels.
More often than not they are good with receiving fairly hot mixes ... some even explicitly ask for them because they already made levels with the composer's preproduction demos and they want to continue where they left off instead of adjusting to a different gain stage.

Interesting process for sure ... because you will have to get those mixes approved by the composer, too ! Good luck when their mix is 0.1db below distortion :D

But there are ways ...
