Default Rules Worth Following?

"Jarto" schrieb im Newsbeitrag
The famous Lasker says:

Lasker's rules for the opening
1.Do not move any pawns in the opening of a game but the King and
Queen pawns.

I prefer 1. Bc4 / QB4

2.Do not move any piece twice in the opening,

This is correct- in principle. Naturally, there are a lot of exceptions.

but put it at once on the right square.

If there is only one: OK!
Counter example: After 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 = Bc4 and Bb5 are good moves.

3.Bring out your knights before developing your bishops,

This is because the knights often have one best sqare (f3, c3; f6,c6) and
e.g. after
1. e4 e5 = Nf3 attacks directly the e5 (instead of Bc4 etc.)

especially the Queen's Bishop.

Hm, why that?

4.Do not pin the adverse King Knight (ie. by Bg5) before your opponent
has castled.

I would say: No, it is incorrect. Was Lasker afraid of h6 and g5?!?
