It would also be nice if that would be stated somewhere at
or a sub-page thereof.

If no criteria are specified, what does the procedure help?

It would also be interesting to see how criteria are verified, since
e.g. in Wikimedia projects, people are blocked even if published
criteria for blocking are not met.

It would also be interesting to see how sanctions are enforced, since
e.g. in Wikimedia projects, there are instances where user A does
something without getting sanctioned, but user B for the same action
does get sanctioned.
