As long as two lifts don't use almost all of the same muscles, does your body recover from them independently?
For example: Let's say you do deadlifts and bench press on Monday. On Wednesday, you know you're recovered from the bench and you're ready to PR again. However, you're still recovering from the deadlifts and need to do a lighter load recovery workout to get ready for a deadlift PR on friday. Is it reasonable to segregate their intensity levels in this manner?
