I don't think the problem is having "Day One DLC". I think the problem is having "Day One DLC that you're going to have to pay $10 more to get". At some point it feels as though the developer sees you less as a valued customer and more as a mark to be bilked.
Honestly, DLC as a whole feels like the latter, but at least by waiting, everyone can pretend it's more like the former.
