Descriptions should always be required (sticking with long-held Commons policy). We're looking into why that may not be the case in some places currently.
Feel free to throw this over to Matthias if you don't have the bandwidth 😈

Currently testing this out on Beta, but there's an error. Eric believes the issue is already fixed in another patch that needs review.
Tested this on Beta and it seems to be working.

I tested this today on Beta Commons and had a weird experience. TL;DR - this all seems to work fine but I did initially have a problem with descriptions suddenly becoming optional instead of required. I could not replicate this on further testing though.

These are good questions! But I think, for now at least, we have to lean toward using existing templates for a few reasons:
Assigning back to Matthias since we've agreed all that is need is to go through the checklist in whatever order feels right :)

Do I need to account for other types of protection? It looks like the types that might apply here are full protection, semi-protection, and cascading protection (pictured in your mock).

Removed a project tag accidentally
This was done, but may be revisited in the new incarnation of a search gadget, if we go that route.
Going to close this one based on earlier research we did (some documented here) and the likelihood that we're not going to use Advanced search for our purposes.
We're redesigning/restructuring the search approach a bit so this isn't valid anymore.
Tested on production and is fixed.

@alaa_wmde any thoughts on this? We seem to be stuck (see Eric's comment above)

This has been default behavior for months (see T216450). We're open to discussions about changing it if there's a large community desire to do so, but this is the first time I'm aware of anyone mentioning it, and there were multiple reasons for implementing it in the first place, including but not limited to:

Checked this today on numerous files on production and the panels were normal. Calling this resolved.
This was fixed on production some time ago.
We did build out a prototype, although the exact future of this kind of search on Commons remains a bit unclear. We may still create a search gadget specially designed for SD, or perhaps Commonists will be fine using the upcoming Commons Data Query Service.
Now that we've released all the basic features, the original concern about overwhelming the recent changes feed with Structured Data edits has not turned out to be a problem. But I'll keep this ticket for now in case we'd like to follow up as part of polish in 2020.

This is an old ticket now and many things have changed. We still have issues with taxon names not matching common names, but current thinking is that it's going to take a Wikidata community campaign to fix that.
