I've bolded one section of your comment. If you replace "will do what is right" with "will do what they think is right" I'll agree with you.  That's where the whole specification dance begins...how confident are you that you'll get a good contractor? It's one of the (few?) nice things about working for the (sub)contractor directly - I know when to trust them, and when to know they're likely to screw it up.

N.B. I suspect that a large number of contractors--sadly, I don't feel confident enough to say "most"--will do what is right no matter what the engineer says. But there are far too many that don't give a rip. And those are the ones we have to prepare for.
