It sounds to me like you want code examples, not really a framework.
I've read several plugins by wp developers and suggest you read

1. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shadowbox-js/
Clean overall code structure and very well documented.

2. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/scb-framework/
Good code and documentation, plus it's a plugin framework.

This is really too plugin-specific.

I don't think there's really need for that, there are excellent
tutorials, just google them. Not sure about the codex.

> 7.       Pre-defined sample widgets

Hm, is something missing on http://codex.wordpress.org/Widgets_API ?


p.s. It's a little sad how badly (not at all) documented many plugins are,
yes core devs, I'm looking at yours :-/
