By all means, CHANGE THEM! I hate propagating others'
mistakes. I see it a lot where I work and I steadfastly refuse
to conform when I realize the "way it's always been done" has
always been wrong. Change has to start somewhere, and the best
place to start is with yourself. There will be confusion and
resistance at first, but I think you'll be surprised how quickly
they will all catch on.
