Rule Ammendments

Changes to Rules are inconspicuous

New built-in Rules appear without any fanfare. Plus there a so many of them, grouped in so many subcategories that they may remain concealed.
Addons require downloading and installation, so the addon Rules have more visibility than the builtins. Plus they can be searched as a category in the Plugin Manager.
