Subject: Let's put it this way: How do you judge the quality of a movie adaptation of a book?

The answer is that it doesn't matter as far as the PPC's concerned. The Harry Potter movies could be the worst trash in history to disgrace a silver screen, or heck, they could even change everything about the original and lose its appeal, but they're still valid adaptations of the original novels, and therefore, the PPC cannot mission them no matter what. That's the rule about published adaptations. The same goes for translations, I assume, especially if the changes are reasonably justified.
Always remember that the PPC's mission is to eliminate bad fanfiction, not bad writing. Otherwise, Bella Swan would have been six feet under by now.
