Default Average Audio Peaks

I've recently been asked to mix a spot for a network with a 'target loudness of -24LKFS with instantaneous audio peaks not exceeding -6dBFS with average peaks not exceeding -10dBFS'.

In the past when mixing to -24LKFS, I've seen specs stating average audio peaks around -17 or -18 dbfs..With this particular target at -24LKFS, doesn't an average peak of -10 dbfs seem a little hot? Perhaps room for peak effects at dramatic impact? A network precaution?
