New Home Construction - Rough inspection - Low Voltage requirements?

Dedicated Theater Design & Construction - www.avsforum.com
So I'm currently in the middle of building a house, and I'm running all of the low voltage, but I'm trying to hunt down what the inspector will be looking at for my work. Can't seem to find much on the topic for this stage.

So far I'm just trying to keep to these types of items:

1 - All cords secured to surface going down or across a stud.

2 - Any wires that will terminate to item installed into drywall is held into place by cardboard and poked through the middle.

3 - Don't mix low voltage and line voltage (duh)

4 - Protect wiring from nails and screws (1 1/4 clearance from edge to hole)

5 - Try not to run low voltage lines parallel to line voltage

But how finished does my low voltage wiring need to be? For example, I have 20 Cat 6 lines, 12 speaker wire lines, 5 security camera BNC lines, and 6 cable tv lines that all run to the same spot in the basement, but just dangle from the ceiling to the floor where the future server rack will be. (They are neatly tied and labeled though.)

Is that as far as I need to go on that end? Are there other common issues other people have ran into? Thanks for any ideas to watch out for!
