I still believe that teamwork eliminates any "bad feelings" that come from the disparity, which addresses a good portion of the complaints.
I'm currently in a play-by-e-mail 3.5 game. Our 15th-level party recently came across a room containing nine nagas (it was a big room). My character, a psychic warrior/elocater with a touch of barbarian, is very fast, and rushed into the room towards one of the nagas, struck it with is giant sword, and wounded it! Next up, the wildshape ranger/master of many forms used a blade barrier SLA, and the druid cast arc of lightning. Six of the nagas died.
I was seriously considering having my character mope in the corner after that one.
This anecdote certainly isn't the be-all and end-all of the experience, but hopefully it illustrates that "bad feelings" aren't necessarily eliminated by teamwork.
Oh, and there's this, too: my nephew (who is playing the master of many forms), when we saw the set-up in the room, asked, "So, you're going to run by them and whack them all with your sword, right?" Something that's consistent with the power level of a 15th-level character, completely in character for my PC, perfectly sensible to my nephew as a player, and not allowed by the rules.
