Default How strict should my Cat5 installation be?

Ivor, why wouldn't you use cat5 for telephones, am I missing

CAT5 is stranded conductor whereas normal phone cable is solid. Stranded
cores (at least in my experience) don't make as good a contact with the
displacement type terminations on a standard telephone socket.

Just my view, your mileage and/or experience may vary.
