Please explain how this is even remotely relevant for a programming language.

(Clearly, this was written by people who were trying to encode word processing text.
The giveaway is the phrase “simple text editors such as program editors”.
This recommendation is attempting to solve a problem that programming languages do not have.
I’m not aware of any uptake in the word processing world, either.)

Grüße, Carsten
