 For example, "checky argent and gules" is acceptable, but "checky
 azure and gules" is not.

I guess I don't understand this.  Why do azure and gules not have good contrast?  I understand sable and azure or sable and purpure, but why doesn't gules have good contrast with all the other colors?  What this seems to say is that, unless you have a field that is divided into 2,3 or 4 parts, the rule of color next to a color doesn't apply.
