In practice, that guideline is close to the same as the
guideline you objected to, in the sense that they have very
similar practical consequences even if that guideline comes
from the GNU philosophy whereas the guideline I gave is based
more on pragmatics.  It might be helpful to give the GNU-philosophy
guideline first, as the basic principle, and then list the pragmatic
guideline as being commonly associated with it (albeit distinct)
when Gnulib is concerned.
