It's trivial. You have a page per sound with descriptors. Even if only
to get some sense whether our
labelling concepts are at all similiar it could be interesting. All
that's needed are many people to contribute

As a database linking sounds with verbal descriptions it could open up
all sorts of research.

That's more or less like labelling a sound by its duration -- lacks
affective zing. If you said
"this is a squishy half cadence" you might come closer.
