For any given instance, I fully acknowledge the value of "cheap
heuristics" (e.g "profiling", "rule of thumb", "shoot from the hip").  
What I'm trying to expose is the meta-heuristic of being a facile model
builder/adopter/fitter... and how our technological prosthetics (precut
colored plexiglass and stain-by-number patterns or GPS/routing systems
that present opaque-to-the-user preferences or predictive SDE
programming environments).

There is also a syntax/semantics tension in your question which seems to
parallel the "ends/means" justification.
