CAD & BIM - Repeal the Don't Ask Don't Tell Policy

I was reading a story online about the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT).  As you know I'm here to be a source of information, ranting and occasional humor, as I was reading the article a thought popped into my head.

I was thinking about the DADT policy at architecture and engineering firms.  It's quite simple.  Take a healthy dose of CAD operators.  Put them on a project that behind deadline and needs all the warm bodies you can muster.  Tell them to hurry and get the plans out the door.  
Voila.  You've created a policy of "Don't ask for help" and "Don't tell anyone you don't know what you're drawing".

Of course the same can be said for BIM projects as well as CAD projects.  I'm hoping that DADT gets repealed by the AIA so we can have construction documents delivered to contractors that don't have to be redrawn in Revit to find all of the MEP clashes.
