Integrators: Do You Stock Non-Plenum Cable?

I think it's best to only stock plenum cable, because if someone has to grab a box and run out for a service call, they don't know what they'll run into and any larger projects we would order cable for, so we could get CMR if needed. It's better to only have plenum on hand and spend than having an unsuspecting tech drop a CMR cable into a plenum ceiling and get called out on an inspection.

But other people disagree with me on this and say it's a waste of money. What do you do in your shop?
