I added a page to the LuaCheia manual that talks about some linking
details. It doesn't contain everything you suggested, but at least
it's a start. This page is LuaCheia-specific, but hopefully is
generic enough to be helpful.
In the interest of compatibility I think the LuaCheia project would be
willing to adjust naming conventions etc if necessary, and compatible
with project goals. If the Lua community reaches a consensus around
these issues, then this could be turned into a LTN.
