Should allow all?  Specify one method?  Disallow one or two methods?

I prefer 4, 3, 2, 1 (in that order). But I don't think standardisation

That's my preference as well, although IMO #1 looks like a mistake (missing punctuation) -- my vote is to not allow #1, but let writers pick any of the other three methods.
