I'm sure that some will view it this way.  "Path of least resistance" is 
often my own approach as well.

Anecdotal counter-example:  a very nice solution to the test-suite 
traceability requirement (i.e., linking a test case to the test assertions 
in the standard) was devised in the XSLT TC (by Ken, as I recall).  But it 
relies on having an XML version of the XSLT/Xpath Recommendations.

So yes, it might look like overhead.  But it might actually *further* the 
technical work in some instances, rather than retard it.
