Here are some of my topics to add to the list:

        Creation, Discovery, etc.
a.  plugin discovery (standard location, registration)
b.  different levels of creation (just enough for host to inquire about 
properties plus another level to prepare resources for audio processing 
[for more efficient scanning, and other issues], or only one simply level 
of creation)

        Parameter attributes
a.  normalized or not
b.  min, max, default values
c.  unit type (enum or custom string)
d.  value distribution curve (none or enum and/or custom function)
e.  all one type or support for multiple types (intgeger, decimal, 
boolean; union, struct)
f.  read/write/visible/invisible attributes
g.  randomizable
h.  hard ranges or soft ranges

        User states:
a.  handle multiple state sets internally in plugin or handled by host
b.  presets are static or volatile
c.  settings storage format (single or multiple states, endian, 

        DSP state:
a.  when to reset
        i.  and what to reset (different types or resetting?)
b.  handle multiple stream formats or not
        i.  single plugin can handle multiple i/o configs
        ii.  single plugin instance can handle multiple sample rates
        iii.  how does the plugin react to any changes in stream format 
(destroy and reinstantiate, DSP state reset, higher level DSP resources 
constructor/destructor [see Creation b. above])

        Audio streams:
a.  alignment (yes or no or optional)
b.  denormals (plugin concern or host concern or CPU state concern)

a.  property listeners and parameter listeners vs. polling
b.  ability to resolve accross address spaces or not
