Joel's argument about the cost of bug fixing is a compelling one. Your "wontfix" may be benign at this point in time, but who says it isn't going to turn malignant just before you're due to ship?

But yes, if you're so dogmatic about the rules that you cross the line between running a project and practising a religion, you may end up cutting off your nose to spite your face. A talented manager is hired to know the difference.
