What type of information can be learned about a project by viewing the project schedule?

Let's say you're a stakeholder, what is the information that you expect to learn by viewing the project schedule?

Is the following list exhaustive:

- Is the project on schedule?
- Are some of the resources over-allocated?
- Are some of the resources under-allocated?
- Is there a lot of slack (or is there little slack) in the schedule?

I'm sure it's not, what can you add?

I think you nearly covered it all, I can also think of the following myself:

- What is the critical path
- Who are the resources allocated on the critical path
- Will there be a hiccup in the project if resource X gets sick (resource X has a lot of tasks on the critical path)

I'm sure I have not covered this exhaustively myself as well...
