I don't like the divergence between WebKit Code Style Guidelines and WebKit source code. I've often got review feedbacks that I should modernize the code around my change. I'm going to change them manually, and all patches will be checked by reviewer's eyes. There is a previous such effort. Bug 159802 – Add final keyword to WebCore/svg classes https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=159802 It seems that I shouldn't change the current 'final' method specifier rule of WebKit. Then, I think the sentences should be revised such like C.128.
