I suggest you to go here and check whether yellow, orange and brown markings surprise you or not. That could be a good test.

Thanks. I do recognize for most of those marked elements that something's a little "off" -- moreso with the slurs/ties so perhaps I will look into focusing on those.

I don't currently have further specific ideas beyond the outline given on
the LilyPond website, but any insights into these projects, and how I should
best form a GSoC proposal, would definitely be welcome.

I think there might not be enough time to define all specific changes
that are needed in beam positions or tie and slur shapes before
application deadline - it's a lot of work.  However, you can try
describing some general changes, for example:

Yes, although I'll try to outline some significant changes, I think most of the work collecting specific problems and examples from the literature will have to take place in the early stages of the project. I'll give some thought to how to approach that process.

Thank you both for your help and insights -- I'll hope to put together an application (while still keeping up with school etc. this week...)
