There are some serious problems here, not the least of which is there is
no canonical set of best practices!  There are at best a set of
guidelines, many of which are in violent conflict with each other.  If
it was just a set of rules that had to be followed the field would be
much easier, but as it is it's devilishly hard: the practitioner has to
balance lots of tradeoffs in order to come up with a policy that
maximizes the client's satisfaction.
