And that, hits the hammer right on the nail...

Or to put it better:

It always just depends on whose pocket it is, in the above example the
blocker is the sales droid whose pockets won't get any deeper at the
moment, in a lot of other cases it is the management types who don't get
a direct benefit from it.

And actually, who can blame them? Be sure to know that when time runs
out though that they will come screaming at the techies, but then again,
those types generally don't get the bonusses for that then to save the
ass of the above types...
