It happens to work correctly in a well-formed C++ test file.  I've
seen it mess up reformatting in other types of documents.  Heck, I've
seen it take a large fully-formed document and turn it into a single
monolithic paragraph.

I think *every* style guideline should allow for the maintainers to
revisit them on a case-by-case basis.
