Yes, I have "clear instractions" said, but I did not mean this exact translation of "clear
instractions", because it is very clear for me that it comes to opinions or preferences of
individuals (at least in the cases where there are no fixed rules are)

That is absolutly clear for me, for example because I've worked 8 years in the OOo-community.

On the other hand, it is not a general rule, for example, in cases where the majority of Community
does not agree, no one can insist on his personal decision - I think.

I can perceive a chance only if I know the various choices at all.
I think, moreover, that it is not a bad choice to listen to the personal Preferenz an experienced
community member, rather than make himself a less good decision. (not always, but sometimes)
