One of the reasons why there are guidelines is to provide literature that is readable by the maximum number of people. It's a commercial decision that means nothing if one doesn't care how many read what they have written, or a practical decision if one wants a better chance of a larger audience. If the style is based on originality it is likely to fail if it requires the readers to do extra work. That is one of the most generic reasons for readers not to finish a book.
