I think the biggest omission from the list of events is "stillbirth". You can always create your own event types. However, this is a death-like event that Gramps should recognize. That is, in places where a date of death is listed, this date should be listed.

Perhaps we should create a wiki page with a list of suggested event types?

Thanks for volunteering! ;)

Seriously, to whomever decides to take up this challenge, a couple of suggestions:
1) Start the list with a "Country" or "Region" so that terms used in other areas can be interpreted by the reader appropriatly.

2) (I know this is obvious) Include a real description not just a five word statement.

3) Include an example and narrative about the example that makes it easier to wrap your understanding around something that is not familiar to your current culture. (i.e. Workhouse, how/why, etc.)
