AP Style - death to euphemisms for death

It's kind of sad, really, that AP had to put out this update to its stylebook this week:

death, die: Don't use euphemisms like passed on or passed away except in a direct quote. 

Maybe we can now work on that phrase that's become trendy among a lot of TV reporters: We reached out to xxxxx for comment ...

I guess "asked" is too complicated.
