I have not encountered this in the past because it is a bad idea.
If these are A325 or A490 bolts, the rules are contained in the RCSC. The RCSC Section 3.3 indicates that short slots are permitted in high strength bolt assemblies. The shear strength is a function of how the bolt connection is being designed and the orientation of the slots relative to the direction of the load and whether the bolts are designed for bearing or slip critical. The washer will be held in place by the bolt during the tensioning process.
Welding a hardened washer is a bad idea.
What the SEOR is indicating is not a good idea.
That said, your subject was titled "Welding of Plate Washers". Plate washers are generally mild steel plate and it is weldable depending on the specification.
