OK, that *is* an issue. But with any luck, it's an issue that will only have to be resolved once (when your style guide is developed).

We are in the process of creating a style guide for the company. The first
manual she proofed of mine, she suggested that I change the left
justification to full justification except the text next to graphics. My
boss of our division asked me why I preferred left justification, and is
business correspondence standards separate from technical writing. I
recently submitted a report justifiying (!) my background, my degree, the
opinion of the technical writers in this company as a group, and I also
included references from other sources to prove that I wasn't just picking
style and justification because I think it is pretty.
