Nope, you are entirely wrong. Certain guests hate boundaries of any sort, and lash out if you attempt to enforce them.
Some guests who have been burned by chaotic hostels and Air listings deliberately embrace a home host with structure. From this group, I get reviews such as this (from my unforgettable Belgian guests who were touring American drive-ins to get an idea of traditional U.S. culture):
