It's important to weigh ideas based on their merits.

And willingness of the person who brought them forward to implement

But that is "bad".

No, smart and pragmatic. If you do it the other way around
(perfectionism)
you will never get anything done.

Arguably there's middle ground between "crappy" and "perfect".

A good implementation needs to have some flexibility - there's nothing
worse than painting yourself in a corner with a 'crappy' solution that's
inflexible. :)
