Hmmm. Well, that would certainly apply in a Theory X organization, assuming the editor is the writer's manager. But in a Theory Y organization, or anywhere that the editor is seen as a colleague providing a service to the writer, I can't see that a disagreement of this type constitutes insubordination or any other sort of corporate sin. I guess it depends on the company.
