I'd agree. Architects should be set up to take responsibility for this stuff, anyhow, like liability insurance or bonding or something.
If he really is over a barrel maybe you could give him a good break on it, especially this time of year, but I would hate to do it for free. Sometimes keeping a good relationship can help out later, but being somebody's b1tc4 / fall guy is just as likely to let the other guy think he can always get away with treating you bad. Definitely need to think about it and size up the character of the architect.
I love to keep customers happy but some people want the moon for one dollar over cost...
