Great answer to "Should color be mandatory or not", less so for "when is it appropriate" :)

comment “Do it right, against customer's wishes” - how is it called?
SF an analogy would be a seat belt - it doesn't "cause deaths" by itself. However if it fails and the person dies as a result - you can bet the maker is liable and will be sued! The fact that seat belts didn't used to exist on cars doesn't help make a case.

comment Should programmers itemize testing for projects?
(Dunk). Sure, though what seems blindingly obvious now ('good programmers write tests') was actually not the standard, or even common 20 years ago. Things have changed a lot and I don't know the OP's background, experience, etc.

Retitled, reworded (and submitted for reopen) to be more appropriate and about itemization of testing rather than about contracts with programmers which is kinda how it looked.
