You may want to consider adding in a paragraph about wear on a biner and how it affects strength. I know I have some old biners that are worn down a bit that I no longer trust. Basically, if the wear is visible, the biner is suspect - especially with the asymmetric light weight biners.
Additionally, a section on how to clean a biner would be good. I do clean my biners, but I never lube them because I do not want them to pick up grit.
One final item: Wire gate biners are less likely to ice up than standard gate.
