Forget the editor, what about the DP? Doesn't he want to see dailies?
As a sound mixer and studio owner, I see nothing but potential for
problems. I've deleted the original post, but I think I remember the
gist. If budget is such an issue, then the kind of people who have enough
experience to really make this happen in a money saving way are probably
not going to be involved. There isn't going to be someone to blame on
this except for the accountant.

It can theoretically be done, but you had better make triple sure that
the sound mixer, audio post facility, editing facility, transfer
facility, et al REALLY have the know how to make this happen _together_
because that's what it will take. Don't let them all say, "yeah, we can
do that." as they reach for a bookshelf full of manuals.
