Premium Freight for Bulk Material

We supply bulk chemicals to automotive customers for production of polyurethane foam. At a recent QS-9000 audit we argued that subcontractor paid premium freight charges were not relevant to us since our raw materials are commodities which we purchase at a market price which includes delivery. Our subcontractors cannot pass on these costs to us, so why should we need to record them?
The auditor was sympathetic to this point, and did not raise a nonconformity. He suggested we take this up with the AIAG for a sanctioned interpretation to remove this requirement for bulk materials.
Anyone else with relevant experience who would support this?
