I agree with Bluey. Also the climber should communicate things like "slack" and "take" at the very least to help the belayer do their job. This all seems very obvious. At most gyms, you need to pass a quick test to lead there & to lead belay there. This would be good if it weeded out crappy techniques and dangerous habits. I can't vouch either way for its effectiveness.

I've pointed out things sometimes both as an instructor and as an observer, in most cases being greeted with a dark look and mutterings.
