I've heard a very well published author (100 some books) say that if you disagree with an editor or agent's notes, just disregard them, send the book back in a few months, and they'll never know the difference.Apparently, he was not talking about Miss Snark.
Or any agent with a brain.
The idea we won't recognize something, even just a glimmer of familiarity, after we've read it and given notes is pretty insulting. Besides, why would you do this? Does anyone think that what I thought was slow and poorly written in January is going to suddenly be fast paced and enticing in June? Not even Miss Snark drinks that much in the summer.
