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.
