Couple thoughts...

- I didn't spot any intentions to keep the 2 alignments into Woodley Park continuing westward toward the National Cathedral & AU. I'd wager those could be some attractive destinations.

- The southern terminus of the Anacostia Streetcar sets up a bit awkwardly for a transition into Maryland, with a potentially expensive redundant piece if the line is anticipated to lead into the interchange of the Beltway with I-295 and National Harbor.

- The alignments' termini in Southeast, approaching Bellevue, also seems like a good share of its potential ridership shed is cut off by the presence of I-295. I'm not too familiar with the area, but I'd think shifting it eastward might capture some more generators within its range.
