Donnie, in my area we have to justify everything
the owner/GC/(s)he-who-writes-the-check doesn't think they need, and saying "it's code" usually gets the question "why?".
I've often got the "let's-sit-down-and-talk" thing many times from not only GC's but some folks at the supply house too, usually after the "that's what all the other electricians use/do" speech... the consensus being in a nutshell that if I don't "loosen up" and "be reasonable" then my business won't survive.
...as if I'm blowing things out of proportion by trying to adibe by code...
Code is right up there with Speed Limits, child support, and taxes...
Most around here in my parts think they're a good thing for everyone but themselves.
