Sorry, but I don't understand why spot metering on the white is necessary following your rules. I am interested, this is why I ask.

Spot metering takes an extra couple of seconds over the auto-magic metering modes, but learning to do it is a snap and quite satisfying once you start nailing every exposure! A couple of articles I wrote on the subject:

Metering on middle-tones (aka middle-gray):

Remember that the key concept here is "what you want to be white" or "what you want to be be middle-tone/gray" -- there's no right answer, just your choice.
