I really cannot say what one SHOULD do. I can only say what I do or don't. So, about rules: My principle is that I never forget that the cards are for playing, even if many collectors never open their decks. People should be able to quickly see and understand the indices etc. No very small or very extravagant indices or pips. Do whatever you want, just let me know what this damn card is. Is it a Joker or an Ace of Spades?
In general I believe that rules are there to be broken but not completely demolished. Demolition is too easy.
P.S.: Oh, I forgot my Golden rule: No more Cthulhu decks!
