Recently, I've had a couple of clients put this forward; yes, our digital design is a bit rubbish, but it's as rubbish as all our competitors, which makes it okay, because people have learned how to manage their way through our websites and digital stuff.

The implication being that to improve it would somehow break people's mental models.

It makes a kind of twisted sense, I guess.
