I think you are mixing up characteristics. Sometimes you seem to be talking about characteristics, but then sometimes you talk about things like shape under locking characteristics. You should list all unrelated characteristics separately. So you have something like this where you explain a bit of the pros and cons of each choice:

General Characteristics

size
weight
cost

Specific Characteristics

material:
steel
aluminum
other?

construction:
round bar
I-beam

shape:
oval
D
asymetric D
pear

gate:
wire gate
straight solid gate
bent solid gate
the new Petzl wire-solid hybrid

nose:
notched
shrouded
hooded
keylock

locking:
non-locking
screw lock
twist lock
ball lock
other?

strength:
(each entry is an attribute rather than a choice)
axial
open gate
cross load

If you go through that list and categorize a carabiner by each characteristic, you have pretty much described everything you might want to know about it
