I was busy to reshuffle the tree of scenario's
It is logical to start with determining your targets. A target is always (nearly) outnumbered. What does that mean? It is either:
- Hanging (outnumbered, LPDO) or
- B.A.D. (Barely Adequate Defended, nearly outnumbered) or
- Of high value. A king is always outnumbered when you attack it

We already talked about this position before. The point is, that the black queen has lack of space. But I did not see that. Only when I realised that b8 is a convergence point of the second order of the white rook and knight, I saw that the black queen is actually a target.
But that leads to a weird addition to the scenario which handles the lack of space (see the red ellipse in the first picture). It doesn't look elegant, but I can't do without the addition. The guide I'm developing must somehow lead my attention to b8.
Another position where I couldn't find the targets was this:

2R5/3P1pkp/5bp1/1q2N3/p7/6BP/5PPK/8 w - - 1 1
The reason that I couldn't find the targets here, is because they are not on their target squares yet. A few preliminary moves are needed. I have it not worked out yet, but I smell a weird addition already.
I will update the post when I have worked it out. Feel free to comment already.
