    Hi Christciber A standard does not mean that it is the only way to do something. Standard is set so that there is uniformity but they are not regulations and therefore are voluntary. If everyone used the standard then it would make it easier for the next person to go in and not have to figure out how you wired it. But in the real world it is not like that. Techs were wiring before the standards came out in 1991 and they taught newer techs how they create cables not necessarily how the standard said they should do it. If you are creating a new install you should make it easier on the next tech by using the standard. If you are working on an existing install you will have to see how they created the cables.
