I like it! Some of my most effective code was written that way but the end result of such development tends to be users that feel "cut out" of the process, as if we did not value their input. And with the wrong users in that dynamic you could be turning water to wine and they will still find things to complain about.

The other day I was tasked with extracting over 500 field names and associated labels from an excel file(it was sort of a form template).

Obviously not something I graduated from University for, so I wrote a script that did it for me.

FDD all the way.
