Much of what you are talking about I would term good design practices - no problem with those . To me only 3 and 5 are coding standards . And in the case of these I would much rather that time was spent on designing , and testing than these . If having or not having a curly brace on a single line block is your biggest issue then you are very lucky .
I have yet to see a project yet where 3 and 5 have been a significant issue. However I have been involved with hundreds of arguments with developers as to what the style should be . And invariably it boils down to 'my style is best' . I have lost count of the number of times we ended up with ' I think X' ' ' No I think Y' arguments . When in reality the time would have been better spent thinking about the design , process or testing .
