Strong Guideline

Strong Guidelines are the second strongest rule of the StylePrinciples and override the default policy of using ConsistentOriginalData in cases where ArtistIntent is not applicable.

The following StyleGuidelines are considered strong guidelines:

AbbreviationStyle
Nearly all abbreviations must be expanded, except for in cases in which a strong evidence for an ArtistIntent on using abbreviations in titles and/or track names can be provided.
SeriesNumberStyle
Numbered series of tracks or albums must be named according to PartNumberStyle or VolumeNumberStyle, except for cases in which a strong evidence for an ArtistIntent can be provided or SeriesNumberStyle, PartNumberStyle and/or VolumeNumberStyle allow exceptions.
