I'm not really worried about it either - I'm glad that people have picked up on it as it the first step in debugging poor execution plans.

Sql Plan Management basically has the same premise as this quote from George W. Bush:
"There's an old saying ... that says, fool me once, shame on... shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again."

And it is a very interesting subject area as well as a complex one.
