Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think we're putting the cart before the horses. First we have to define what information we want to represent and then work on the best visual representation.

For instance, let's just say that we want a "who nominates/appoints/elects whom" graph.  Then the first thing you do is research and list all the *A {does B to} C" that we want to chart. And then we arrange the A's and C's so that the B arrows connecting them are a  uncluttered as possible. And then we can add additional labels for voting weights, qualified majority vs. unanimity, etc. And there is a time dimension as well in that certain thing happen in sequence.
