Who here doesn't use ctags or similar? Because using navigation
techniques that only work if not technically enforced style guidelines
are followed is not really helpful to people who read and write code in
many different projects.

Basing style guidelines on navigation techniques strikes me as odd.
Style is only there to ease reading and understanding of the code.
