that part of the document's a draft - just a starting point. most of
it is just collected practice, not necessarily best. someone needs to
pick it up and drive it through a review process so that best practice
can emerge. one way of doing the review would be to pick sections like
this an throw it open for comments and improvements before you try to
apply the guidelines.

or just patch it as you go
