FYI that some of these decisions have already been made and implemented.  I don't think we published this in HTML form, but here is where we landed on some of the items you mention such as namespace, groupId, artifactId, etc.  The comments don't appear to be visible, but it's from August 2018.


We can/should update that document with any additional additional details such as namespace for future TCKs as well as give it a version and publish it to the website.

As far as enforcing a specific project structure on all the specification projects, that was discussed and the Specification Committee decided to give projects flexibility in that regard.  As long as the spec project produces the right final results, they are free to use any project structure, testing framework, etc.  The final results for the specification are defined in the JESP.  The final results for the TCK are described here:


This doesn't address all your comments, but hopefully provides some useful background.
