Right about the squat and deadlift. Those are the "dangerous" lifts and should be executed with proper form. Dipping the bar just a bit while squatting is ok imo, as long as back is arched.

The total back arch in deadlift is not a must for me as long as it is more arched than bend forward and that it stays tight.
