stream is to go thru lossy codecs, you should keep within a tighter limit,
like -3 dBTP.
So if there's a sort of warning, it should be a user setting more than a
hardcoded value.
Besides, depending on the sample format in a PCM stream (fixed vs float),
raising the file1 to the target level might induce irreversible artifact on
peaks (let's say you have a stream whose integrated loudness is -27 LUFS
and max true-peak -3 dBTP, the +4 dB gain will create peakings if you are
in 16 bits PCM).
