I think what would be helpful, rather than just a "statement
of direction", would be a listing of "safe to deploy" tags,
or perhaps a listing of elements and attributes with comments
alongside each to indicate likelihood of deployment.

Something like:


DIV                  3.2
         ALIGN       3.2
         CLASS             80%          1, 2

I'd write it myself, but I don't have the information! ;)
