Yes. It is also very helpful for those who will later try to
understand, interface with, debug, modify, or otherwise work with the
code (including, in a great many cases, the original author of that
code).

The great boost that EIBTI grants to maintainability trumps, in my
view, the annoyance felt by some at the time of writing the code.
