Don't enable the rule police.  Guidelines are "best form" but I don't
think they need to be enforced to the level where it becomes crazy.
Remember, we are here to enable developers so we need to be reasonable
people.  (An exception process?  Come. On.)

Honestly, I believe that this decision right here determines if we turn
into structure for structure's sake or we turn into something that is
open to developers.

We need to stick to the middle ground here.  Guidelines, not rules.
