Tangential, but does JSLint then require either long sequences of property accesses and method calls to occur all on a single line or to always be broken with "." and subsequent property name starting new lines?  For example, if this example must include a line break, at that dot-location, is this the only way JSLint would permit it to be broken?

var b;
var a = b.c.d.e.f.g().h().i()

(I actually prefer this to ending the line with ".", but the argument for dot-at-end seems reasonable enough to me that I'm surprised JSLint would mandate the other way.)
