Keeping the 'unseen' copper/fiber bundles neatly organized can actually 
make those moves easier.  If you have to replace a jumper, sure it means 
taking some extra time to undo and re-do the velcro tape loops as you go, 
but if done properly, it shouldn't add much extra time.

The argument could also be made that a properly run and dressed cabling 
job would need to be touched less frequently, and by extension, is less 
prone to physical failures that would require changing out a cable.
