I don't know if it plays into preferences or not, but I do find that
having things on one line makes it significantly easier to
programmability modify the line with a Regular Expression.
Maybe I need to learn some more about RE's to make working across lines

My $EMPLOYER does have CR processes that complain about lines longer

Interesting. I wonder if that's where the 132 column (alternative)
standard came from. I.e. XTerm's "Allow 80/132 Column Switching" option
in the VT Options menu.
