  In regards to (a) above, certainly. Why else would publishers spent
  quite abit of resources making sure that books are as grammatically
  correct as possible?

  Could it be that actually /following/ agreed on protocols of
  communication makes communication /easier/?

  Personally I'd rather have one well-written book in grammatically
  correct English than a thousand and one I couldn't make heads or tail
  of.

  But that's just me.
