Clearly I disagree! Quite a lot actually.
That's fine.

At -2.2 you will get premature wear from your front tires doing normal street driving or commuting. If you are toe'd in a little bit, that will alleviate some wear, but zero toe to toe out, tires won't last nearly as long as they should. Toe out is a bad idea for a street driven car on many levels.

A client of ours killed a set of front tires at -2.2* camber with neutral toe within 10k miles doing street driving.

As someone else mentioned, toe is a major tire killer compared to camber.
