Well, for me, I might or might not meter that white as zone 7. It depends on the rest of the scene. If the rest of the scene is made of zones 5 through 9, then metering a zone 7 white as zone 7 could blow out zone 8 and 9 objects. So that's one situation where I would meter the zone 7 (or even zone 8) as zone 5 (for a digital camera). Then I would bring up the exposure in post.

Very true and another reason why getting fast and accurate with spot metering might have an advantage over matrix in that situation. Very easy to make a zone 8 a zone 7 with spot metering...harder to tweak matrix at times as it requires review.
