Definitely agree with you on that one. I'd guess it more a problem of scope-creep. You can also solve that by discounting, but it's much better to solve by enforcing different accounting for change-requests. I've found that if you keep time spent on scope-creep as a separate bottom-line, it draws more attention to the problem (which makes it more likely to get solved).
