Yo Bernie:
I'm not with you on this thread.  If you aren't there with a set of calipers,
"designed to sell a rotor" is an easy statement.  IME, if they are below min
spec, a good shop SHOULD be selling you a set of rotors.  "Practical" min
spec, refers to a customer that doesn't want to buy new rotors now.  IME2, a
good auto/machine shop shouldn't be cutting rotors that are below min spec.
So, by the looks of things, this guy's shop is willing to put a new set of
pads on rotors out of spec.  That's quite reasonable, and discounts your
"sell" argument.

Your advice is free, but I'm thinking Anton got most reasonable service here.
 Anton, keep a sharp eye out for stress cracking, new pads on rotors below
min spec could very well mean your rotors will fail before your next pad
