>> - No top-quoting, only bottom quoting or in-line

I agree with most of these guidelines.  I can see most of them makes sense for plain text
reading in emails/archives and on phones.  The only one I have a problem with is bottom-quoting.
 With most email clients supporting threading nowadays, it is faster for readers or followers
of a thread to do top-quoting.  I think if you have specific items that you're answering to
then you should trim and do in-line.  This email, for example, to me is in-line with one item.
 If you are replying to an email as a whole, then you should simply top-quote.  For the people
who are reading archives, it's not too much trouble to follow in reverse but for people who
are actively participating in a conversation, it saves a lot of time not to have to scroll
