Cost of complexity, in software

I just found this interesting post on Cwalina’s blog about the cost of complexity in software:
 
 
I too, am a huge fan of choosing clarity/maintainability of code over performance and other trade-offs, until performance becomes a problem. Especially in business development, where there is traditionally a somewhat high attrition rate. So, I like the idea of having a group that does nothing but refactors and cleans up code – and to have the business understand the hard-dollars associated with making code more easily manageable. I wonder if any companies actually do this?
