The premise is good and there are bits of good solid information in there, but statements like "This is you, the designer, politely drawing a line in the sand on principle, but demonstrating that you, the servant, will cross it if you must." create a mind-set in designers that isn't healthy. I'm not saying to not cooperate, but you aren't a servant to a client. Sometimes if a client won't back down on a decision, then its time to push back, or fire the client. It may be that going with their decision will cost you more money in reputation, than in what you'd get for their project, because you will have created sub-par work. That isn't to say, that you should give up early on without a compromise.
