It's quite common to have an short introductory paragraph saying something
along “this list is not exhaustive and is not meant to be, it's just there
to avoid any discussion should any of those important misbehaviour arise.
For other cases, apply the above guidelines using your best judgment.”

Obviously, I would want such a list to be more like an appendix than the
main meat of the CoC.
