I think the developers are bound by an obligation to the suits in these cases. DLC is probably "standard practice" to squeeze one more buck out of the consumer.

It obviously works, and so it's a hard thing for a developer to defend the integrity of the game on that point.

Most people don't think it's a big deal - and the result for game balance is "trivial" in the eyes of most. If you're into a balanced and challenging game, you will have a different opinion - but it takes some experience to recognise when something is breaking the intended design, and I'd say most mainstream gamers couldn't care less about the diminished challenge resulting from shiny loot.
