Has anyone tried to categorize this information into a reusable format for
several languages?

But I won't try to discourage you. Although I wonder
sometimes: why does every conlanger have to start from
zero again ? What a huge time saving it would be if he
could re-use modules other people would have thought,
written and tested already ? He just would have to
choose the ones he likes. We do so in computer
programming. If we had to write again the basic
routines used to compute "2+2" or "IF X > Y THEN A
ELSE B", nobody would ever use any computer programs.
