If you are ok in principle, I'd rather not stop the vote now if we can 
avoid it.  Perhaps  you could  propose new wording for a subsequent 
revision if you think it is important. The important thing in publishing 
a coding convention is that new developers joining the project can set 
their IDE's/editors  a certain way and know if they do that they won't 
hit any tripwires.  Just about every new developer in this project 
(except for you) has hit this tripwire.  You were keen to it having 
navigated the course before.   Most folks coming in to fix their bug and 
get out, don't have time for the traditional code formatting hazing 
ritual and I don't care to subject them to it anymore.  This has wasted 
a lot of people a lot of time.
