This isn't an acceptable response.  These guidelines have wide support
but aren't Wikipedia policy.  Style is a matter of personal taste, and
the manual of style is useful when it's used in the sense for which it
was intended: to enable editors to work towards a harmonious
appearance in their own edits across the project.  What you're doing
in trying to implement the manual's recommendation across the whole
encyclopedia is certainly unnecessary, and probably needlessly
alienates other editors.
