    Good guide!
    I would argue that "nouns ending in a soft sign -ь don’t change in the Accusative".
    It works for лошадь but not for конь.

    Also I don't think that we should support those cabbies, who don't respect the rules. This business easily regresses to the wild state.

    "nouns ending in a soft sign -ь don’t change in the Accusative".

    AFAIR must be femine also.

    Can anybody explain, why doesn't лошадь change in accusative though it is a living thing? Are there may be more words like this?

    Not so many feminine nouns ending in 'Ь' exist, I think:
    рысь
    мать
    and alike
