you mentioned in your list that we don't know what ajah elswell sedai is,well,

we don't know anything about her,she was one of four aes sedai who bullied 

rodel ituralde to take the throne of arad doman after the last battle,it was her

first, and last, appearance in the wheel of time story,(there are a few more aes

sedai like her who pop up once and disappear),and the only reason i even 

remember her is because i did find it odd that robert jordan would introduce a

new character 10 pages before the very end of the story.

Probably a gray, but thats hardly definitive.

 

Little off topic but (and im sure this theory has been theorizeded already)- anybody else think Cadsuane's strength discrepancy might be explained by one of her hair ornaments? A ter'angreal that made the bearer appear a good bit weaker than she actually is would go in line with 'theme' of the rest imo.

Possible, but why we don't know nothing about that? If there is such a thing why RJ/BS didn't used? I believe that RJ change his mind about some things in progress of working...It's a normal thing, but his first ideas are not the canon , the ideas that made it to the books are! Something like Taimandred idea, just an idea that is nothing more than that...so for me post like "Taim is Demandred and the real killer of Asmodean" are just wishes, not truth....

For m one of the most interesting things is how Jezrail was able to cut from the source Katerine. How strong has to be Jezrail? Nynaeve couldn't cut Elayne when Nynaeve was already on 4(+10) and Elayne somewhere around 11(+2) at CoS...Another thing is why Pevara didn't find strange the beahvior of Javindhra who is 11 levels bellow her, when she told her that she thinks to leave the Black Tower. Ok so Javindhra was already Turned, her behavior is not so strange , but why Pevara didn't think about that? How was possible for Annoura to Travel at all at 33(old 21) when we know that the limit is somewhere around 22-21(old 10-9) level.... The only explanation is that Brandon didn't understand the Power levels.....

In practice you're probably right, but you could argue Talents. Androl can barely channel, for instance. There's some balance between a Talent of traveling and the raw power needed for it.

Ok, lets say that Annoura had the Travel talent.. than why she got burned out? something is not fitting. And one more thing why we have so much information in the Companion about the rebel Aes Sedai sent to the Tower? Is there  was a big plan about them?

I like the thought process here...the breaking era Paralis Nets were different in many ways than the pre-breaking ones.  I would think that some of the other ter'angreal hid one's ability to channel, or inverted the weaves, tricks that Moggy taught the Salidar girls.  We know from Nynaeve's ter'angreal and Cadsuane's that they contained a well, an angreal, ter'angreal to find direction of channeling and if cads is to be believed, strength of the channeling and type being saidin or saidair.  Nynaeve's included a ter'angreal that produced an armor made from air better than any steel armor which the POV is that one would barely feel any blow made against them.  I think that it was even hinted at that they contained a communications ter'angreal of some sort.  Some Dreadlord nets might even contain a ter'angreal to weave compulsion or to cast a berserker spell on minions similar to the warder frenzy upon an Aes Sedai's death.  It's kind of fun to try to think of what else ter'angreal on a net could do.

No...it's specifically mentioned that with her angreal she's equal in strength to Rand...Im suppose it's how she she was able to capture male channelers by herself. Plus, even when you have an angreal other women will sense the discrepancies between how strong you feel and how much power you hold when channeling.
