Thanks for this very interesting discussion. There are a couple of books that that I've been exploring that may be of interest. Both are very pragmatic but substantial and focus on project management -- not sure if that is exactly what you're looking for, but they are both worth a read.

Process Quality Assurance for UML-Based Products by Bhuvan Unhelkar
Addison-Wesley Object Technology Series
This outlines quality and project management processes for software development using the UML. It includes a CD-ROM with various templates for documenting development.

Service- and Component-Based Development using the Select Perspective and UML
Apperly, Hofman, Latchem, etc.
This is a presentation of best practices for software development based on proprietary software from Select Business Solutions. Even if you don't have their product the book offers a very good discussion of using the UML to drive project management. They do offer some interesting products, in particular Select Process Director, which is a project management support tool.
