10 at 10?

I heard a rumor that you liked to track things "10 at 10" i.e. +10 dB at 10K when going to tape. In another thread, Brian Roth asked about noise floor on your recordings, and if this is true, I'm sure it could have a lot to do with it (for those unfamiliar, you can always roll off the top if you don't need which turns down hiss, and you don't have to add as much, if any top and additional hiss for dull elements). First, is the 10 at 10 rumor true? If so, is it a key to keeping low noise floor on tape or are there other reasons to do this? Thanks from a huge fan of your work!
