Seems to me it might depend on what one means by "non-standard".
I can envision cases in which increasing the number of context lines
would result in the patch being more robust WRT applying correctly
to a recipient's version that might be a bit different than the one
against which it was created.
OTOH one most likely does not want to create a patch with -b unless
the apply tool also supports such and there is a way to communicate
to the apply tool that -b was used in creating the patch.
