Turns out you have to be careful now with that idea. Check out the thread "Commercial Checkride" in this Flight Training forum. The FAA requires that legitimate instructional activity be going on, not just time building. If you receive dual instruction, it must be dual instruction. So if the pilot was going through a required company checkout on the aircraft, fine, it's "dual recevied". However if it's just a routine flight from here to there and it just so happens that one of the pilots is an MEI, that doesn't mean both can claim PIC time by saying "we'll just call it dual received".
