I admire your scholastic zeal but I'm afaid that I can't really see this happening. I should just opt out, but allow me please just to make a couple of points.

I don't want chord symbols in jazz to define an exact voicing or indeed an exact scale..being able to interpret them is part of the whole creative tradition. Jazz is not about mathematical exactitude, it's an artform, not a computer program. EbMajb5#11/B immediately gives me a base from which to expand into a whole palette of possibilities (but you could get away with leaving out the b5...Ha).

I'd rather read an expertly hand written chart than an expertly written Sibelius chart.

But please carry on, really, I do admire your enthusiasm.
