Subject: Editor modelines

Editor modelines

Is there a policy on adding editor modelines to the source code? I've
noticed that a few files have modelines like "vim: et sw=4 ts=8 sts=4
tw=78" to enforce the 4-space indenting style and keep the line
length under 80 chars. Should this (or something similar) be added to
each source file? If not, how would I configure vim to use these
settings automatically only when editing rockbox source code?
