Above the meters is a numerical report that will hold
the peak readings.

Not sure what you mean by a summing issue. Could you

I recently used one of Tom's Limiters to control
transient spikes. The sources were 16bit, 44100
produced on a Yamaha 4416 with its very marginal A/D
convertors. The limiter worked very nicely. The
transients I was dealing with were visible in the peak
files. So far, I haven't had any that weren't visible
and I am control freak when it comes to output levels
during mastering. I think I would have known but then
again, maybe not.

During print and control room mixing I take advantage
of the digital signal to noise and work with
relatively low levels.
