Programmers (and lawyers!) are pedants by nature. :P

If the letter is routinely disregarded because it is overly strict,
then the letter should be changed or it becomes difficult to tell
which letters are to be taken seriously.

Hence my suggestion that the decision of whether to link nightly
builds ought to be left up to individual projects (de jure as well as
de facto).
