I understand that you don’t like this.

But all of our style rules are like this. We don’t apply them across our entire 
project at the moment we institute them. They guide the future of WebKit. So 
this is not a valid argument against adding a new rule.

You can help us apply a given rule to existing code if you feel strongly in a 
particular case, and in some cases it might be practical to quickly apply it 
everywhere relevant. Maybe in this case it is.

But that’s not the basis for deciding whether to make it a rule.
