These two sets of documents are an excellent start.

Now this idea is so obvious that it probably has
already been discussed ...

We need an authoritative set of such stuff at the
top-level. Then each *project can consistently point
to "The ASF Guidelines" from their own doco. They then
provide the URL to each committer that is proposed. Easy.

If the top-level documents also had named sections, then
each project could clearly refer to those when they need
to express some local clarification or extend the principle.

Such top-level guidelines would also allow communities to
work together and be consistent.
