I have to agree with the developer and I don't believe this is perfectionism. I have a distinct feeling this is experience and being burned a few times. The specifications you are providing, to me, don't sound fully flushed out and it sounds like there are a whole lot of truly unreasonable expectations of both people and the final system. I am left with two conclusions, either you are building a prototype to demo to reinforce the requirements, in which case the developer SHOULD NOT BE DEVELOPING, or you don't have a full understanding of how systems and people usually function and you need to be looking hard at your expectations.

Call me a skeptic but your stated requirements break down like this, you have someone who wants to create data, never read it, will always input it correctly and always have whatever that data is follow through perfectly. That is what you are describing. From CRUD you are stating is that the data will only be created, well that means you don't need the read to verify the input was correct. You don't need the update because their data will always be input correctly the first time, and never need alteration. The data will always be followed through on (i.e. I have a store and every order ever placed will always be completed and never removed). Unfortunately, none of that sounds true. It sounds more like the specifications aren't fully flushed out and you are prototyping a product that is not whole.

I have seen this, and I may not be exaggerating here, a million times but when you start the sentence off with I have this data, it literally means, I will tell you I don't need CRUD but in reality I do, I just don't realize it yet. I will the day before we launch. In nearly 20 years, I have yet to hear of a system that never needs all of the parts of CRUD. I have bumped into systems that don't need the delete part, but even those are rare.
