I would look at Rfree and Rfree-Rwork, and maps of course. To help in
deciding what are the "good / reasonable" values, use POLYGON (Acta
Cryst. D65, 297-300 (2009)) (phenix.polygon), local real-space
correlation (phenix.real_space_correlation). I think Nat bundled them
all into his magic tool called phenix.validation with will do this and
more (it is GUI based).

Yes, this sounds right in general.

It's trivial and not at the same time (at least the way I understand it,
of course I might be very wrong). It's trivial to compute the number of
refinable parameters given the strategy you choose, but how you will
count the restraints which are kind of quasi-observables, and what about
weight that if chosen too strong so it can turn the restraints into
