This has been my experience also, from a workflow point of view it seems much more efficient to grade in rec709 and fit that into XYZ for cinema, rather than grade in P3 and convert to Rec709 for broadcast.

There will be a bigger variation in the wild (commercial projection theatres) -- a bit like trying to predict how your 709 grade is going to look on Fred and Marge's LCD that they just brought home from Tiger Express.
