Over on What manual of style should I use for technical writing for US Federal Government documents?, I posted the following comment:
Interesting question, but this is really about government work, not English language usage. You could just as easily ask which brand of pen to use while doing government work, or what make of car to lease.
@MatthewMartin replied with this:
I disagree, your comment would make a good meta question though. Someday someone is going to ask a question about the Chicago Style Guide or try to answer a question by appeal to it. Should we close those for being related to the tools of the trade of a journalist?
Was I right? Was Matthew? Neither of us? Both of us??? Discuss!
