Hi,

I've addressed this during the F2F at TPAC,
A best practices document is a guideline on how to successfully achieve a 
certain task, in this case putting data on the web.
>From the discussions at the F2F and on the mailing list it is very clear 
there is no 'one size fits all' approach to this.
There for I think it is important to make sure that we start with 
explaining why a certain best practice is a good idea before we explain 
what needs to be done.
We collected plenty of use cases where certain best practices might not 
apply at all so just reading the why makes clear it does not apply to a 
situation.

>From a more philosophical point of view, explaining why something is a 
good idea has proven to be a better stimulus then just telling someone 
what exactly to do.

My comments were initially about the template [1] but then I noticed that 
the editors [2] draft already takes some of my comments.
Was that intentionally to address this issue or by pure coincidence?
If intentionally the template [1] should be updated and this issue can be 
closed, if coincidentally we should discuss this.
