As with all Best Practices recommendations, its effectiveness is
determined by how widespread its use is, and whether or not it
eventually influences specs.

At least I'm hoping to provide a rule-by-reference, rather than having
developers discover this over and over independently.

Also, for future reference, monasticxml.org isn't particularly
interested in the "coder's perspective".  It's squarely and very
deliberately focused on markup works, not what's easiest for programmers
from other perspectives.
