The ISU documents about GOEs and PCSs also use the word "clarity" a lot. I assume that means in particular, that if you are supposed to be on a particular edge then this ought to be clear -- as evidenced by the "depth," which ideally should be obvious to the naked eye.

So speed, and how it is achieved, depth/clarity of the edge as it relates to the position, and control of upper body when changing positions.
