I just want to discourage offering patches to generated files as much
as possible due to reduced maintainablity, reproducability and

*Guidelines* are there to allow for deviation where it makes
sense. Therefore as a guideline I prefer to be strict and
discouraging. People will still make one-line fixes and use sed/perl
to fix trivial stuff, and that's OK to a certain extent. But if the
guidelines start off with a loose situation then you get even further
deviation from what is sane.
