I'm not very happy with this.

"CodingStyle" should be about the big issues, not about details. Yes,
we've messed that up over the years, but let's not continue that.

In other words, I'd suggest *removing* lines from CodingStyle, not adding
them. The file has already gone from a "good general principles" to "lots
of stupid details". Let's not make it worse.
