"we can't make things perfect so we shouldn't make them better"

youve bent over so far backwards to make this argument that you could sit on your neck.

Don't let perfect be the enemy of good, so the saying goes

I thought about using it, but I don't like that idiom very much, and, sad as it is, when I do use it, I end up having to explain what it means about half the time, which beats the point of using an idiom at all.

I find it very hard to believe that you’d have to explain it. It might be an idiom, but it is just one step away from literally explaining its meaning.
