Mark. As an old studio guy in Nashville I can tell you that compressing to tape(we still refer to it that way) is a very common practice. Especially since digital recording became popular. Look at pics of studios with racks of vintage compressors. I probably own 25-30K in them. In the 70’s we even used racks of 1176, LA2,3’s to compress to 2″.

Competent engineers know what they want to hear and adjust accordingly. I have has a studio full of orchestra or choir with first run down telling them to play/sing me their loudest part. Set the thresholds and run with it. You are always still monitoring it as you go or the A2 does. Compression will still be added later in mix if needed. See it all the time.
