The high level question we would want to answer would be "how much work is it for people to conform to convention X". I could envision trying to automate that by taking the corpus of pods, applying some amount of automated transformations based on the known or proposed conventions and the Podspec, and then seeing if the project builds. If it wasn't too much work to build such a system then it could be invaluable in vetting convention proposals, but I'm not currently familiar enough with the ecosystem to know if this is viable or not.

If you think it is, that is totally something I would consider taking off list if/when I had some time to hack on it...
