Yep, exactly! This sums it up nicely. EVERY decision in software dev is a trade-off. Managing expectations is the way to go.

Clients cannot and do not understand what feature or change requests mean for a given project timeline. They have to be made aware of the consequences. Not everything is doable. Every advantage comes at the price of a disadvantage.

There are no free feature/change requests, least of all in the final stage of a project.
