I think the only guideline we should have is that the first line should be
written as though it is an email subject, because it gets used for that. If
you write a long first line, then you get a long subject, and it looks
silly. If people want to embarrass themselves with strangely formatted
email, they it's on them. We don't need a specific hard or soft number.
