Another rule for decent language design:
If the grammar that you want to present to the user in the reference
manual isn't LALR(1), the language design should be considered
Following rules like this in language design should get rid of much of
the work of compiler writing, since they eliminate features of the
language that make compiler writing hard, but don't add anything
useful for the user.
Not, of course, the opinions of my employer.
