Regarding a couple of your concrete suggestions: I like the idea of using existing academic jargon where it exists. That way, reading LW would teach me search terms I could use elsewhere or to communicate with non-LW users. (Sometimes, though, it's better to come up with a new term; I like "trigger-action plans" way better than "implementation intentions".)

It would be nice if users did literature reviews occasionally, but I don't think they'll have time to do that often at all.
