I agree with almost all of your points, with the possible exception of having a complete set of requirements before starting the design.

Some of the requirements may not be apparent until you have already done part of the design. For example, the original design might have envisioned reading certain personal information from a public database, and immediately discarding it after use. Due to responsiveness and/or reliability constraints, it turned out to be necessary to keep a local cache of this personal information in a local database. This requires following the legal requirements for databases that store personal information, which is a whole new kettle of fish.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
