Does someone have an authority to cite for that bit about interjections needing an exclamation point or question mark?

Most basic salutations are interjections (even if many of them derived from imperatives), and can generally stand as sentences on their own - and are routinely used with a period, even in formal contexts.

"Hello." "Goodbye". "Farewell."

Recettear had one. Leaving it for someone who doesn't mangle the coding. :p Recette is spying on Caillou with a paper-thin-disguise tree (cardboard and boards nailed together with a sign that says "Totally a Tree" taped to the front). Tear's objections fail to carry across the proper message...

Tear: Somehow, some way, I feel we're more conspicuous to Caillou like this than we were just standing around. In fact, every single person in the square seems to be staring at us. I think even the dogs do not know what to make of us.

Recette: Aw, Tear, don't sweat the small stuff!

Tear: What.
