Do you all think it is possible to categorize other games in terms of the three main modules of 504? I'd be interested in seeing the attempt.

In terms of mechanisms that may be the case, but in terms of feeling or presentation and layout of the rules (not to mention theme) I highly doubt it.
Some of the Worlds (=games) of 504 "feel" like they are close to some other game, but still it will hardly ever match the actual game.

I've seen a Geeklist, where Friedemann explains the fundamental ideas behind the modules with other games that carry the same ideas, but still that does not mean they fully match - its just to give you an idea how the modules "feel":

This would be a fun geeklist. As the item put the game that a world is similar to, and in the geeklist item text put the number and some comments about it. I would read that.
