I have no problem with paying for art. Put it all in the game, and charge 80 bucks for it. Many games I would buy for double or triple the price if they were marked as such.

That's a 33% hike in launch price, if we assume launch price is 60 bucks. That means they could only afford to lose up to a tad below 25% expected sales before the hike (75% * 133% = 99.75%).

Do you honestly think the market is in that position right now? That enough people value your position enough to cover that hole? Personally, I don't blame any publisher that are insecure about that.

I mean, I'm not 100% opposed to your stance, but lots things just aren't fair in the world and expecting actions from the point of view that they are is, in itself, unfair, imho.
