If your message uses the word "v1agra" numerous times, it's probably going to get blocked."
And as soon as you say that, what's a spammer who's any good at spamming do?
They immediately work around it.
If they wanted to, they could make that info available through Webmaster Tools.
It's something they would probably do if spammers weren't an issue, but unfortunately, they're in the mix with the non-spammers too, and the more information they give the easier they are to game, in fact, my guess is your idea would probably totally backfire for the 'little guys' because the 'little guys' who need 'more information to rank' are way behind the professionals who already do, so the more they give away the farther ahead the professionals would be, simply based on time, interpretation of information and resources ... The more they give the more they help the people who already know what they're doing, because then those people can 'mirco-tune' their approaches.
They give plenty of general guidelines on their webmaster guidelines page, imo, and more info helps the pros more, not the Mom & Pop sites ... Do you have any idea how much more focused on manipulation people could be if they didn't have to spend time researching approaches? Really, it currently takes resources and time to test ideas and methodologies, and the more of those that can be 'eliminated' or 'confirmed' through information given away, the more time there is to fine tune approaches.
