What people often do on the FS7 is to expose one or two stops over, and "print down" for monitoring and post (see this video from Convergent Design).

While this is a useful approach to reduce shadow noise, you are doing so at the expense of highlight latitude. If this approach has been taken, it is more likely that windows and practicals may be blown out, unless care was taken not to. And as Kevin says, if something is blown out in the rushes, it can be hard to make it look good in HDR.
