I posed a question for discussion What is the preferred style for displaying links? which asked whether there was a house style or authors could markup as they pleased.
A review of the discussion can be summarised as "I prefer X" without ever addressing the over-arching question of justifying a house style. The discussion lapsed two days ago.
Now I am seeing a number of requests to endorse reformatting edits with a heavy emphasis on switching links from one style to another.
On what basis would I decide to "approve" the edit?
