What you expose for is subjective to the scene; e.g. would you over-expose a body in an INT night love scene if you wanted it dark and moody, or would you under-expose the body and let, say, a light in the b/g go slightly over exposed for some separation? There is no really 1 size fits all for all situations.
For myself, I over-expose (on 500T normally) in order to tighten up the film grain, knowing I can add in more contrast in the Telecine-- that's just me. Conversely, I don't over-expose, say, 250D, which I rate normally, or 200T (normally I take it @ 200, but sometimes I'd do it at 160/125).
