Shared coding conventions allow teams to collaborate effectively. While it is possible to omit the specification letter before a
statement, it is advisable not to do so because including a specification on the line indicates to other developers what type of statements will be
added to the program by the copybook. Further, using a specification letter on the line makes it clearer to those who might be skimming the file that
the line is not just a comment, but does contain code.
