We could say what a strange reply.

In practice it's actually extremely important to have your processing under your full control to get good consistent results.

In the late 1960's I used the technique of increasing dev times in unreplenished developer, I soon switched to replenishment as it made sense and results where totally predictable.

There's various development options but which ever is chosen it's important to learn to get it right that way you can concentrate on making images with confidence.
