And let's not forget that if we're looking at
books, we have to take
into account appendixes, something you have to fight to justify on
Wikipedia. That list you want to split from your large FA? Hmm, is
it a notable list? That list you want to include in your paper based
subject specific encyclopedia? Certainly, Appendix A. I don't pretend
to have any answers, all I'm asking for is thought and an attempt to
address the actuality in front of editors rather than underhand
attempts to protect an entire empire of rules. But I think on that at
least we agree. We both appear to want fewer rules.
Sadly, there are also rules about what is and isn't an appropriate use
of an appendix, in the Chicago Manual of Style and elsewhere ...
