Path of least resistance or fight? Unfortunately, sometimes the fight isn't worth it. I had an auditor issue a "finding" against a an old, approved, PPAP of a legacy part because we didn't have a "key date" filled in on our PFMA. Talking to him and his superiors was like talking to a bag of marbles. I got nowhere.
And, in doing so, you open everyone else who is audited by that auditor to the same round of non-value added findings, thereby helping to hasten the very thing you rail against. If you couldn't get a suitable response from their management, guess what? That's what ACCREDITATION BODIES and oversight (IAOB) are there for. Plus, you can move your certificate.

To all those here who participate in this lemming like response to bogus findings, I'd ask you when YOU are going to "STOP THE INSANITY" (apologies to Susan Powter)
