I suspect you can make "clear" what it is that the programmers are supposed to do, without including the citation. The documentation just would not be as informative as you might like to have it. That is probably OK and not worth fighting over.

The developer and his manager (I'm guessing) just aren't very good with words...or capitalization.

I was told again to use "internet standards", not even capitalized, and definitely to not include any additional guidance or info, because, and I quote the developer *and* his manager, "Clarity is not needed in this regard."

Why would it be ok to write something that we know is not clear?
