The idiocy of smart guys

If you need an asset in orbit, common sense tells ya it should be put there at lowest cost. The clearest explanation why ARM makes no sense.

The only reason ARM makes no sense to so many is they're ignoring the mission objective.

SLS/Orion can't go to a NEO in situ, so bring a very tiny NEO to lunar orbit.

Thus, ARM makes perfect sense, if (and only if) they are going to use the same mission design to enable SLS to launch a Mars mission. (Currently, Mars is too far away for SLS/Orion to reach it).
