Absolutely. I would say "blindly following the latest" is a huge timesuck and can totally derail a project.
 
Software is meant to serve a purpose. It's rarely there to be a thing unto itself. It seems more and more devs are forgetting this and focussing on the code and tech rather than what they are trying to actually provide for users.
