The general rule may be something like: "These coding guidelines target
the general-purpose or basic standard library [need better description]
domain. In specific problem domains it may make sense to replaces for some
of the detailed guidelines as appropriate."

In applications code, I personally switch to mixed-case type names. A lot
of people seem to do that.
