Having unnecessary elipses does tend to weaken their significance. I
would say FF is wrong -- and maybe the HIG guidelines need amending or
clarification, or local interpretation?

I agree to you Jim, but that is just how rules tend to work out, no? They are almost never interpreted organically (at least not outside of italy), but strict.
At work, I try to avoid putting everything in guidelines, it hits you in the face after some time...
