---- Client Wants Me To Refuse Services To Competitors

This isn't even SEO, it's straight web design work:
I have worked hard for the last 9 years to get where I am at as a freelance designer
And the other offers aren't even for design work, they're just for light updates and routine site maintenance.
Two of her competitors have contacted me, asking for website updates - nothing major such as a re-design, just clean up thier sites, make some small additions - and they are willing to pay very well for my services.
This in no way is competing with Client A, and the advantage to A is that she won't have to shell out extra cash for exclusivity that makes no difference anyway.
One advantage I've seen with web developers who have multiple clients in the same industry (BUT the ones I've seen also do SEO, and a darn good job of it), is that judiciously done link relationships between them benefits them all.
This person here is not even mentioning being asked about SEO.
