The standard for grading a proof is to grade it based on the way it was taught, which is why teachers of the course should make themselves available just in case there is a question about how to grade. When I taught proofs during the year I emphasized good mathematical reasoning and allowed very few shortcuts, but none of my proofs were ever worth as little as 6 points, which means we have to adjust our thinking when grading a proof on a Regents, but even if you aren't actually grading the exam, you should write the answer key so your colleagues know what you accept and what you don't.
