For me that rule was more about asking people to think twice and add the
proper abstraction when possible.
We do not want style checker warnings, which becomes a motivation for
creating better abstractions.

For example, recently a second implementation of some of DOMFileSystemBase
was added for blackberry (most if it is an exact copy of the common code).
With a style checker warning, the author would have had to justify this
kind of decision (and hopefully fix the code instead).
