Adding more and more rules I do not find as a clear win.
When I code GDB I have to think about so many established non-standard coding
style rules my head is going to explode. Switching between multiple projects
each having different coding style makes it worse.
But sending a patch and getting it corrected here and there due to unwritten
rules one could not find anywhere is also not great, though, I agree.
