I don't think the style guide should be available publicly in an 'updateable' format its purpose is for authors to produce programs that users are instantly familiar with - this is what gives RISC OS its look and feel.

By definition changing it changes how you would expect a program to work and would lead to confusion as some programs would use the old way and some the new. You are always free to write your programs in any way you want but don't expect users to instantly understand what you are trying to achieve you will only be able to do that by adhering to the current style guide. The style guide is not something you can change every week because you thought of something better.
