No problem at all. Unforunately I cannot provide you with any reference documentation at this time due to sensitivity of the information, and I currently don't have the time to anonymize any of the information. Microsoft use a fictional company called "Contoso" in reference implementations of SharePoint, I had once came across a detailed planning & guidance document but I can't remember where I came across it.

Taking on board Rob's comments, and yes, using SharePoint as a platform to surface information in an already existing MIS is perfect as it has a lot of the tools available to do that. I'd start by building a proof of concept, and report on your findings of building that, and what challenges you came across. If it will be globally deployed (and it probably will), you will definitely need support in terms of running the system - one-man armies of SharePoint admins are quickly stretched to the limits.

comment Debugging Feature Activation Trouble Attaching to W3WP.exe
Trying to debug a "Release" dll caught me out before. Ensure "Debug" is set for the build type, and a .PDB is generated in your build folder.

comment Get the current List and Item from an application page accessed from a feature link
Ah, understood, and you have a separate link which links to your application page in the elements.xml, also. I think the easiest way to be able to dynamically add stuff to the querystring is to use a usercontrol for the button on the toolbar.

How are you displaying the button in the toolbar in the first place?

comment Why is SharePoint creating a second image on top of the text in the nav bar?
I'd advise against editing core.css as a best practice, as any service packs or updates will probably revert the changes you made. Override the relevant elements you need using your custom css.

comment SharePoint List Best practices
Use the internal ID field, it's consistent and guaranteed for uniqueness. Use a lookup for foreign keys, again you have SharePoint looking after the referential integrity.
