I’m not sure that some of them lead to clearer documentation in the way that is hoped (sometimes because it is clear that authors do not know how to write sentences that comply with them, so we end up with badly written English that passes tests).

Feel free to fireup a discussion on the ML. Currently we do not have any grammatical rules except weasel words which I am planning to remove as it will be a too big of a task. All the rules are much more syntaxtical. Currently I believe there are hardly 3/4 doc comitters who are actually using this. :'(
