Why was this question closed?
"As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or specific expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion."
This question was specifically stated to eliminate any "debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion." I made it clear in the question that the only acceptable answer was either a reference to a specific document or publication, or the answer "no", that such a document didn't exist. I said
A discussion or debate about our own personal tastes and preferences is not appropriate for Stack Overflow.
Since I was only looking for "facts and references" and that's what S.O. also wants, my question was perfectly consistent with S.O. guidelines. Furthermore, my stipulation about the acceptable answers worked - there was no "debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion"
Published standards, guidelines, and conventions for coding and documentation are an integral part of what programmers need to use to do their work properly so why is asking about references to such standards "not helpful"?
