Only dispute the method that you exposed on highlight that will result a severe underexposed photo, and then pushing many stops back. I am a strong believer of exposing on mid-tone (middle) or even a bit of overexposed (so-called ETTR, exposed to right).

Agreed. In RAW you have room to recover some highlight detail, so on the scene you need to take advantage of that as well. If you religiously prevent any highlight from clipping at all you are underexposing by a stop, maybe a bit more, making shadow recovery all that more difficult.
