"Not negotiable"

The GTC has opposed the excessive testing of pupils. On the TES website this has been met with a certain ironic celebration on the lines of "at last the GTC is doing something for its money" and about time too.

The government, as ever, uses the argument that SATs are "not negotiable". Is the term "not negotiable" ever used these days in its proper sense of being "valueless"? Or is it always used as term of authoritarian obduracy?
