Dear Emily,

In his MA thesis (2011), Sérgio Castro developed reliability
metrics (ITA) for deep treebanking on the basis of discriminants,
and associated tools, that sought to discount chance agreement,
to handle the "reject all trees" option, and to circumvent
the "redundancy" issues mentioned by Dan.

There was a presentation of his results in that year,
in the Suquamish Summit: http://www.delph-in.net/2011/sergio.pdf

You can find his dissertation here:

We are in the process of further pursuing these results
in writing a paper to be submited. Comments will be very
much appreciated.
