I think the key here is "waste" and what the definition of "normal" is
for each application. Some applications will use lots of power; some
are intended to continue working in the background; however a text
editor shouldn't usually be doing any work when not in the foreground,
and this is what that rule is trying to deal with.

Does that help?
