Maybe so, but it's widespread enough in Emacs sources, including
outside of any macros, so it's a de-facto standard here.

No, the de facto standard even in Emacs sources is the usual GNU style. Outside of macro statements I count 142 instances of the usual GNU style, as opposed to only 28 instances of the K&R-ish style where "do {" is on the same line.

Surely if we want to change the GNU style, we should change the coding standards rather than just ignore them.
