Oh yes, when the programming team is spending their budget on a schema
developer (which is how schema developers get paid at $EMPLOYER).
Uncle Mahmoud's first rule applies:  "The man that pays the bills,
keep him happy."

Not *too* happy, of course: it's important to be a professional
(a professional is someone who you hire to do what's right for you,
not just what you tell him), as well as to be seen as a professional
(otherwise some code monkey would wind up writing the schemas).
