If a deck is traditionally a runway-esque one (not THAT many decks are such, but there are a handful) I've never got any problem with someone taking drastic measures to get some life into it.
In Australia I always thought it was more a case of the 4 or so years of drought having an effect. I'm happy to see pitches with a bit of life in them too though. i think at least one batsman a game should have at least 2-3 deliveries ricochet of his helmet otherwise the curator should be severely taken to task!
