      s/who//.  In fact it might be clearer to say "Files should end with a trailing newline".

    I always follow this rule, but I don't remember why it came to exist.  Is this convention needed for source control or something?

  It’s not needed for anything. Tools like diff produce slightly unpleasant output for files that don’t end in newlines, so we include them.
