Interpretting signal reports (aka Amy-bias)

Depending on radio used, signal reports are either in Circuit Merit or RS notation.
Note: I tend to evaluate CM and Readability as equivalent enough. They seem to inform each other and, in practice, do not seem incompatibly different. Numbers alone are lacking, so where further signal description is helpful, I attempt to do so using plain language... trying to be descriptive but also sticking to some sort of standardized, useful rubric.

Types of noise: mostly hiss, static, sizzle with occasional other guest stars as appropriate or entertaining

Noise modifers to indicate relative severity of noise. These map more or less to Readability or CM and are a combination of how readable a station is plus the quality of the overall signal.

5 full quiet
negligible noise is barely perceptible but present, can be ignored for all intents and purposes... could just be the background noise of existence.
the CM Police would like me to give you a 4 but with all the variables in this beautiful messy world what is perfect?
4 minor I'd like to give a 5 but can't quite do so. Noise is noticable such that it can't be ignored, though it can be easily discounted were we having a regular QSO
light more severe though still under the level of one's voice, on average. may occassionally rise or fade over one's voice, as explicitly noted, but is mostly under the voice.
3 moderate Rough copy conditions, tho perfect copy still achievable with some work and likely repetition to pull content out of the deep. Noise rising to level of voice. `
none Assume 50/50 proportion of signal and noise. Voice and noise are at about equal levels. Becomes necessary to repeat; many words buried by noise.
2 heavy Noise mostly buries voice, few words are readable but the majority are not. Very difficult copy, likely nothing better than partial copy..
1 none Assume mostly noise with possible indication there is a voice down in the depths. Essentially a blast of open squelch.
no Signal report station was not heard
b/s station broke squelch intermittently; not consistent
1/0 or 1/1 station broke squelch consistently throughout transmit
5/9+ (TM-281) station registered one bar past s9
5/9++ (TM-281) station registered one bar past s9 and "OVER"
5/9+ (FT-2500) station intermitently, tho constantly, blipped past 9 on s-meter
5/9++ (FT-2500) station held past 9 on s-meter throught transmission
( ) details not heard directly from station but copied from net control or relay station
