The idea is to stop the spread of rust and to make a lasting repair. There are various degrees of repair, from passing inspection to complete restoration. To me, bodywork is an art form, and has too many variables for well-defined standard repair procedures. Proximity to curves, and sizes of rust areas, along with previous exposure and oxidation are just some considerations -- just like you mention. Some people can work wonders with body filler and you'd never know it's there -- others scoff at it. I find it very difficult to replace a fender with welding and have it line up with the rest of the body. It's hard enough to adjust on a vehicle with a bolt-on replacement, let alone welding.
