I'm not aware of any FAIL in DKIM, or rather it's by definition
the same as NONE, isn't it ? Like SPF NEUTRAL is by definition
the same as SPF NONE.
That would simplify your table to three rows. You could add
the "process" vs. "deny" business resulting in more columns (?)
Talking about "0% false positive" in conjunction with the "1st
author" approach is utter dubious, but I guess I mentioned this
already in the last years ;-)

You could use reputation to decide what "+1" actually means,
e.g. "spammer managed to get SSP right", or to decide if you
wish to evaluate SSP at all. Or you could decide to ignore
DKIM if there's no chance to get a "-1", IIRC you wanted to
use SSP always *before* checking DKIM, or did you drop that ?
