This is not really a CoC issue, more of a best practice one.

The challenge with a CoC is knowing when to quit before becoming the
thought police. Also, it should be things that are measurable and
enforceable. I don't think this is either.

What you are suggesting is really good advice, but isn't something we can
enforce with policy.
