(and probably worth adding that personally, I'm no fan of the whole 
"pressure" aspect anyway. The whole point of guidelines should be to 
point out what the problems are with particular things/approaches, and 
guide content authors towards a better solution. But many people see SCs 
as big hammers with which they can finally "pressure" sites/content 
developers, setting it up as an us vs. them battle which then 
understandably gets more pushback than framing it as a "let's work this 
out together" mentality).
