I'm not going to address most of that severely long and somewhat
pointless post. Sorry Jacob, but you're being way too wordy on this

No, I'm sorry, but you keep talking about standards as if that
actually changes anything, when it does not.

If the standards say do to things other than the actual correct way to
do things, then the standards are wrong.

Rules exist only to make you think about it before you break them. If
the rule says to do X but Y makes more sense and prevents more
problems, then you should do Y.
