Phil has captured my sentiments exactly.
Here's my list of unwanted elements...
interactivity level - I don't think you can qualify this, as it is likely to
vary from learner to learner, and is too subjective anyhow
semantic density - who is going to say their learning materials are not very
useful anyhow?
intended enduser role - I'm not clear on the vocabulary provided for this
one. In many cases the teacher is the author, and I could argue that
resources are equally used by teachers and learners
