Faulty logic.  There's one notation X documented for purpose A.
There's another notation Y documented for purpose B.  You imply
"hey, that document doesn't say *exclusive* so let's use
notation Y for purpose A!".  Your use disagrees with the coding
standard documentation, because a change to a part would be
interpreted as a conditional change when interpreting that entry
using the documentation.  But I've told you that before to no
avail, I think.

Look at it from the bright side: there's no need to inform *you*
again. :-)
