You make an assumption that architects follow this guideline. All of my
architectural clients are on cad but _none_ follow these guidelines. While I
agree it is essential to have office-wide cad standards, it is a waste of
time to try to get a set of standards adopted industry-wide. The AIA
guidelines are a _great_ reference point for all.
