Common sense, which you suggested to apply. Common sense suggests that
no one in their right mind would use "should" when they expect the re-
quirement to be ignored--no matter how good the reasons--in more than,
say, 33% of cases. Since using &#246; instead of "ö" would violate two
should-level requirements, I expect that to be acceptable in at most
10% of cases.
