I think the standard is pretty well-documented. The problem is that people frequently disagree with the results produced by these standards. In some cases, it is because they disagree with the standard, and in other cases it is because they think the standard is being used in an unfair way.
Personally, I have no fundamental problem with changing the standard to require more grade separations for future projects. The problem with changing the standard is that people along existing projects would claim that they were excluded from the new policy, due to discrimination or racism, etc.

I've seen many posts on this forum regarding their policy for grade separating intersections, but I don't see that as the same thing. And even that only sets the minimum requirements. That doesn't prevent them from doing more than the minimum if they want, so that's not a policy.
