I will try to bring in QA Distiller, SDL and XLIFF:Doc. As far as I know, those are the only ones besides CheckMate that might be actively maintained. The LISA QA Model is in limbo and SAE J2450 is done. The ISO draft was officially declared dead in Madrid, but I included it for reference. The ATA one is still very much alive, but serves a different purpose. So I will try to reach out to those three to see what they have to say.

Actually, not yet, since we don't have the ITS markup nailed down entirely yet. But it would not be hard to do so (the hardest part would be mapping the categories to the top-level ones I proposed, but I've already more or less done that after a fashion to come up with the top-level list).

Shouldn't be a problem. I've not got text ready, but I could easily create some guidelines.

Agreed. I'll see what I can come up with in the short run based on the existing analysis.
