I'm not sure you've noticed that I've worked a bit on it this weekend. 
As I said in my last note there:

I think this is feasible: we just need someone to look up those 16 standards 
on wikipedia to see their creation year and the link for the specification, 
then just:
$ wget http://link-to-spec.txt -o /dev/null -O - |wc --words
or, if the spec is only available on HTML, 
$ wget http://link-to-spec.html -o /dev/null -O - |html2text |wc --words

Checking out the Freedom Level is more time-consuming, but answering those 
five questions/points ( ) is not that
