Hmm.. i don't think so.
IMHO defensive programming is something every programmer should employ.
One can never forsee what the future will bring and how the user will
use the software. And in my experience, good programmers will actually
do it this way.

As for TDD, i know of only one company who does it, while all others
i know of write test cases aposteriori, often only post-mortem.
Of course, unless you go into VLSI, where TDD has been the standard
for 20-30 years.
