Now that does actually make sense. If the "ugly" rock doesn't have any holes or caves, and is not porous, then I would think twice about it, too. But from what I have seen you can get very good base rock that is porous, and does have caves and stuff, and then use some high quality live rock to seed the rest, and when it is all cycled and you are ready to populate your tank you end up with a great reef for significantly less money.
