This is a good list of possibilities, but I think you're focusing on mismatches as missing=problem, rather than mismatches as different=opportunity. There are certainly lots of cases where I want more or less or different information than I'm given, but generally I expect that and even expect that it's a good thing. It feels to me like you're developing a list of differences intending to abolish those differences as quickly as possible - though you don't say that explicitly - rather than accepting a world where negotiation at runtime is part of the system.
