You Should Check out the Mini-QAW

Great to see that you're advocating for the use of taxonomies and I agree whole-heatedly in the caveats of using a generic one. Generic taxonomies are great for getting started but really should be tailored over time for the types of systems you typically build. For example, my team built out a taxonomy specific to search-based applications and a questionnaire that goes with it to aide in the QAW. A solid quality attributes taxonomy and questionnaire is a significant part of what allowed us to "trim the fat" from the traditional QAW when designing the Mini-QAW. For your reference, here are the slides and video from the SATURN 2014 talk describing the Mini-QAW. I'm sure your readers will find the additional details on facilitating such a workshop useful. The "System Properties Web" activity is a great concrete example of how to apply with a taxonomy.

What are your thoughts on trying to build a GitHub repo or something similar to help collect and curate quality attribute taxonomies tailored to specific domains or types of systems? I'd be happy to discuss any of these ideas further with anyone interested.
