I just personally think this is too extreme a measure.  There are times
when absolute rules may be useful, but I don't think this is the case

Eli is our documentation maintainer,so let's continue trusting
his judgement. This discussion is not about black and white, and
as such, it's easy to disagree. But I don't think it's important
enough to spend more time on this. I know it can be fustrating
to make a change one does not believe in, but after a reasonable
attempt at discussing it, I'd go with his call.
