Agreed. My copy of Champions, 4th edition has in big bold type on page 117:

A Disadvantage that isn't a Disadvantage isn't worth any points!

On topic, my own definition of "munchkin" is a player overly concerned with optimizing character utility and power. "Overly concerned" is the point at which the character's point values and game-mechanical atributes are more important than the setting, the story, or the other characters.
I didn't realize who I was until I stopped being who I wasn't.
