C'est vrai, except that I would call that the necessary work of data instantiation which must be done to satisfy the particular input demands of any specialized process on every occasion of processing any instance data. If you build your process's data expectations to the common denominator of the data which arrives then you sacrifice the very autonomous, idiosyncratic expertise which makes your process uniquely valuable: common denominator => common value; unique, expert data selection and instantiation => uniquely valuable processing.
