I don't think that's close to true yet for clang-format.

For instance: clang-format does not do anything with
missing braces, or coalescing multi-part strings,
or any number of other nominal coding style defects
like all the for_each macros, aligning or not aligning
columnar contents appropriately, etc...

clang-format as yet has no taste.

I believe it'll take a lot of work to improve it to a point
where its formatting is acceptable and appropriate.

An AI rather than a table based system like clang-format is
more likely to be a real solution, but training that AI
isn't a thing that I want to do.
