Sounds like a good reason to me, Moski!
FWIW, I tend to look for the absolute minimum that will work (e.g., lines and knots) and use that as a starting point. I'll then depart from that for specific reasons that I can keep track of. My reasons may be silly, but at least I can keep track of why I do what I do. That exercise is part of the fun to me. Something that matters to me one day may not matter so much later on.
