I agree. Or as I would put it - essentially optimising against the prima-donna effect. We've all met that guy - and its usually a guy - who thinks the most obscure code with a fractional performance advantage is the dogs nuts.

See also optimising for the future engineer who doesn't have the N weeks/months of sprint/planning context needed to support/extend the current solution.
