Agreed.  Those were both IF statements - but I failed to add the ELSE.

ELSE The rules seem reasonable (besides NOTE and TODO perhaps) and the
idea is a good one.

p.s. re: spelling - If the word is English as long as its spelled
correctly or 'correctly' the American way it should be acceptable.  I
believe that most international English students learn 'labour' not
'labor'.  But both would be fine in a comment.
