That's certainly strange, but the fact is that the Commons components do not
have much in common...  The codes live separate lives (dependencies, even to
"sibling" Commons components, is forbidden for CM), and nothing is more tied
to code than its formatting: I mean, conventions vary slightly from project
to project, and "Commons" cannot be considered a single programming project.

Let's agree that it would be nice to have a single set of conventions within
a "src" subdirectory of the repository. [That's already enough to generate a
sizeable amount of discussions...] ;-)
