Your areas of interest are a good starting point: i think we really need some
new research on those issues. More things may come later in the project. Just
start with the one you've listed.

Because i think QA should be (and is) a team for the control and assurance of
the technical quality and compliance to Debian Policy.

Well I'm too busy to contribute, but I think there should be a cooperation
between Usability and Policy (more than QA).
I'd like to see something like you solving a usability issue, then working with
the Policy to let your solution be consistent with the other rules; at the
end, QA would ensure (as far as possible) that everything comply.
