Tethered vacations and negotiating for more vacation time

I read an interesting article about what it really means to go on vacation because it varies from company to company. There’s also some good advice about negotiating:

Find out what’s expected. Does your manager expect you to call in once a day, check e-mails regularly and be available for conference calls? If that’s the case, you might be able to negotiate for extra days or more frequent vacations.

That does sound like a good bargaining chip and fair too. If it’s not really a vacation it should be longer, right?
