Default Disney Specs Question

Disney ABC specs state the following regarding Audio levels:

"There should be no sustained (longer than 1 second) audio level peaks above +12dB over reference. There should be no level excursions between +10Bb and +12dB over reference, that are sustained for more than one second. Excessive wide dynamic range is not acceptable. Normal conversational dialogue is to stay within +2dB and +7dB over reference."

I would assume the bold text refers to dialogue peaks? I was surprised to not see anything regarding LKFS of average dialogue levels. Does anyone have experience with mixing to these specs? If so, what average dialogue level are you using? Most other shows I'm working on ask for -24LKFS +/-2dB or an equivalent leq(A) measurement.

This is a reality show.

Thank you.
