Just to beat this horse a little more: "overhead" is a technical term 
for accountants; "non-essential" is a judgment call about value to the 
company and the core business.  There is no implicit linkage between the 
two terms, unless the person you're talking to is an idiot.

In which case you should have a few more cocktails before continuing the 
conversation ;-)
