So we have
1) Common Numbering
3) O2 examples

I'm all for those.

What I'd like to see in addition to the above is some sort of actual
methodology instead of mappings of activities (ASVS) to tools (O2) and
compatibility to other guides (Common Numbering).

In TAOSSA, there are code auditing strategies, and I know what you're
all thinking "yeah that's code review, you stupid Andre punk", but no,
no they are not just code review techniques -- the authors talk about
black-box and threat-modeling approaches in these strategies as well.

It would also be interesting to talk about where worlds meet here,
such as how to map URLs to source code depending on the target app
platform. Which brings me to another issue: app routing and URL
rewriting i.e. where a target website location contains more than one
web application, perhaps on different varieties of web servers with
different technologies in place.
