Though I am not aware of any specific T&L literature, thanks for  
sending this around.

I am a big advocate for using models, borrowing organizational  
techniques and vocabulary wherever possible. Just at a glance, there  
seem to be a couple of techniques we could borrow or adapt here.

I'm particularly looking at Table 3 toward the end that adds some  
lightweight structure and context to the discussion. This is the kind  
of thing I like to start with when engaging a new thesis.
