You’re working for an organization that adheres to the Microsoft Writing Style Guide, so you’ve installed the style and added it to your configuration file.

Over time, you add your own organization’s terminology to various rules and exception lists (e.g., Acronyms.yml and Headings.yml).

A few weeks later, a new version of the style is released with a few bug fixes and enhancements. What do you do now? You either have to overwrite your changes altogether or slowly migrate each customized rule individually.
