Those are great questions... For an expert to ask (him|her)self. But what do they mean for someone that is just learning the language?
Here is my attempt to answer you questions from the POV of a novice:
1. Does it work correctly?
Um, I guess so. It seems to work? I cannot think of anything wrong with it; can you?
2. Do you understand it?
Somewhat. I think I understand it, maybe... Is there something I am missing?
3. Would anyone else understand it?
FIIK, a) I am not someone else, so how should I know what someone else thinks. b) I just learned this myself, and this is the way I learned it.
4. Will you understand it in a month's time?
I hope so.
5. Does it strike a good balance between terseness and verbosity?
This is like asking a 5 year old whether War and Peace strikes a good balance between terseness and verbosity. One must have sufficient mastery over the material to be able to judge.
6. Could you make changes to it without it being likely to break in unforeseen ways?
Good Question, how would I go about finding this out? What are the unforeseen ways?
7. Is it fast enough?
Is there a faster way to do it?
