I wish you godspeed on your proposed project. Such a document is sorely 
needed and long overdue.  Even trying to follow Dr. Bruninga's 
recommended practices on his website can be challenging.
You might want to start by compiling a library of user's manuals for the 
various hardware and software currently available and "unify" the 
terminology. There are instances where each person/company has used 
different terms for the same thing and (in a few cases) even conflict 
with which others might use the term.
