Speaking as one who used to play both of those games, it's a hard habit to break. The folks paying the bills don't like to see empty space, because they translate that into wasted $$'s. It's especially difficult when trying to justify building out an additional cage (or making the one you have bigger if there's empty adjacent space) because your current one is at max kva per ft^2 - but has physical room for several more racks. The trick for us was getting enough management clue in place to where you (gasp!) plan ahead for your power needs first and make raw ft^2 the secondary concern.
