Some people often recommend to expose until something important will overexpose, if you have enough light to do that. This is valid for RAW shooting with base ISO setting. It will give the best image quality. Do not do this with JPEG, if the photo looks wrong.

What if you have a situation when there is about +1 EV room left before something important will overexpose with base ISO, but you cannot add light anymore? Is it better to fill that +1 EV by doubling the ISO setting? You should always keep increasing ISO (to the last analog ISO setting) until something clips, if you can't add light? Can it harm dynamic range more than leaving exposure room with lower ISO setting?
