I think it will be very hard to rate such "degrees of conformance" as
people have different views on what's good practice.

It would be nice if validators can check conformance to polyglot
requirements. However as polyglot markup is suitable for very specific
cases I don't think that seeing how much close to polyglot your document
is would be very useful metrics.
