That would work if the engineer was attentive and consciencious. It is difficult to predict when a singer is suddenly going to belt it out. It might work better if he/she then pulls back from the mic a little. Some singers like to have the sound at a set volume then rearrange the volume by their movement towards and away. They can work out these distances in their sound check so it doesn't become extreme. I would have thought the relationship between the engineer and the performer was more impotant than any set rules. I've watched some performers get most pissed off when the engineer fades their sound between songs, especially those who like to keep a patter going while they change their tuning. There are also some who will sing kissing the microphone. Very little can be done about that except to teach them some microphone technique if they are willing.
