As I mentioned in the comments, this is not sufficient reason to go against AUR package guidelines. In fact, the popularity is even more reason for a package to respect AUR guidelines - as these are commonly used as reference for other packages.

Thanks for submitting the -bin package. I will merge the visual-studio-code package there shortly. Whether the visual-studio-code-oss package should be moved back to visual-studio-code is another topic for discussion.
