if my goal is to maximize the info available for postprocessing, perhaps a better approach would be to use average metering (one of the options for center-weighted).

Nein, that's also my goal and that's not a good way to do it, imo. Spot meter the brightest object and increase exposure by 2.3EV or so is my preference. But it's not easy to do in a dynamic situation. In that case you may want to consider matrix+auto ADL, one of Mako's specialties

Cheers,
Jack
