If you will apply ILR under long residence then your wife will have to switch into FLRM that will reset her clock to zero towards ILR. However, if you applies ILR under PBS tier 1 ent visa after 5 years and if she have also lived 5 years & even if not then she can apply its extension without resetting her clock towards ILR.

Not sure what 'policy guidance' you are seeking, but the links below will be useful, especially if you opt to go for 10 year route ILR, which means your spouse has to change visa category, which does not apply if you apply for ILR based on PBS route.

Preferably apply ILR under tier 1 to save your wife's previously spent time towards ILR. Also remember that the decision on ILR through long residence not usually straightforward and almost all the evidences that are needed for tier 1 ILR will also be needed for ILR LR as well.

Thanks for your suggestion , I do have all the requirements fulfilled for Tier 1 ent ilr and the visa is valid until Oct 2019 so I can provide them all the documents if required , I’ll declare this in covering letter as well, reason for ilr 10 years is same day or within a week decision so it means I can travel much quicker as I have my ailing mother to visit .
As far as my wife is concern she’ll complete her 10 years in 2021
So don’t need to wait for 5 more years for her ilr.
And I am not in a hurry to apply for naturalisation

Then go ahead with your plan but if your partner is also willing to travel with you then without switching into FLRM she might be on risk when trying to return.
