Hello Peter,

first of all thank you for the interest.

Anything you didn't see wasn't obvious enough :) No, honestly, you did
lots of research, and you have very good questions.

What is tetum?? - My dictionaries did not help me here.

If it is a language, yes, sure. (When available under GPL)

No, I tried to make up a guide once, but gave up. So yes, please do so.
A guide for others would be most welcome.
I use the TEI (chapter 12) for reference (subset, no superentries,...).
For examples see the other dictionaries.

Well, I think Michael (Bunk) is the only one really using the prologue.
I did not really maintain it. 
I do have some ideas on that, including introductory sections, which
give information about the project, and things such as phonetics used.

Well, I am not sure. I just use the TEI DTD, and actively use a subset
of it.

Good luck, and thanks for you work
