Suggested guidelines: Only pretty, technically and aesthetically pleasing squats. Please no grindy, ugly lifts, no PL squats, no DLs, bps, etc. Only squats (and  maybe snatches and c&js)
 
Kick it off with these two :-

Haha. I know you were joking but her snatch form is too western if you know what i mean. Her back is arched really hard (to a fault, hyperextension). Her clean is nicer she pulls with a flat back but her catch sucks like her snatch. Plus her elbows are too pointy.

Looks to me like both of the squats posted by Entropy have the knee action Dan Green spoke about at the beginning of the concentric.

because front angles look better

edit: this led me to watch the only publicly viewable video kf has up. It's highly recommended.

Does it have to be "beast" beautiful squats or it could be light ones as well?

Unremarkable if they're light I think? Should be at least 200kg (>>2xbw) but there might be exceptions if the person weighs 40kg say. I mean many people can do pretty reps with their submax, but these beasts have superb form even with limit weights both in an absolute and relative sense.

So take this example I just came across:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFCVM55XqOc" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFCVM55XqOc</a>

Yeah it's 'only' 210kg but the guy weighs 52kg. It's a 4xbw Front Squat for two singles. Does this belong? Surely yes?!

I always wonder that as well. I reckon you'd see some ridiculous jumps if these guys trained for it.

Probably 50 inches or so, especially as a small and light guy.
