No. There are guidelines that have a clear technical reason. An example:

   The 'preceding-sibling' and 'following-sibling' axes SHOULD NOT used.
   A server is only required to maintain the relative XML document order
   of all instances of a particular user-ordered list or leaf-list.

This is very different from guidelines how things should be named that
do not have a real technical reason. In SMIv2 land, we had this weird
rule that names of counters should end with a plural 's' and tools
started to implement this and to complain if there was no plural s.
(Actually, tools checked whether the last character is an s, which of
course does not mean there is a plural form.) And of course, there are
irregular nouns in English wrt. plural forms.

I do not want rules that say '-state' should not be used. There may
be valid reasons to use '-state'.
