I have no love for camlp4 and I don't like too much infrastructure. As  
I already said I'm not really interested in having both.The  
recommendation as given has the advantage that it doesn't introduce  
any new type in the standard library or require external support. It  
is just a design guideline. Actually maybe this should have been  
called an ODG (ocaml design guideline) since as other have pointed out  
on the wiki there are extreme cases (like the Unix module) where you  
don't want exceptionless error management and I agree. Still, I think  
this recommendation is widely applicable and should be used for most  
(new) modules and I wanted to be able to put a name on it. However as  
always use your judgement too see if it really fits.
