Well, my recollection may be faulty, but I think that one of the reasons 
the TAG took the trouble to formalize things like the architecture document 
was the belief that it's easier to ask skeptics to stick to rules that have 
been written down, and especially those that have garnered formal consensus 
through something like the Recommendation track.

Whether it's worth taking a guideline on data races all the way to Rec I'm 
not sure, but it seems that it would be worth setting it down formally, 
perhaps in a TAG Finding/blog post/Recommendation or whatever will get the 
right level of discussion, consensus building, and eventually attention.

Certainly, of the many things that have come up recently relating to APIs, 
this one seems deeply architectural and very much within the TAG's remit.
