Is there a reason other than personal preference for this sentiment?

If every <block> is allowed to have a specification part, you would
still be allowed to write

  IF ( <condition> ) THEN

instead of

  IF ( <condition> ) THEN

if that is your preference.

If every <block> is not allowed to have a specification part, everybody
must use the first form, even if they prefer the second.
