At what stage (Key->Breakdown->Holds?...etc) of animation do you guys block in the moving holds?

I mostly do mine late in the day, after everything else when trying to add a bit of life into a slow part of scene. Goes along with blinks, and 'pose drifts' as I like to call them - the main thing tho is to try emphasise that the character is always doing 'something' even if it's thinking through a process in response to what someone else is saying (ie by shifing eyes around or fiddling with a prop). So it's not just a formula led thing.

In a way it's kind of part of the final pass, tho I'd definately hint at them at a blocking stage if I felt I had solid idea at that point.
