This is a good idea. The benchmark parts should also represent the
diversity of shapes we see in the real world. There should be a range
from small parts with intricate detail to large solid objects. This
would allow people to investigate the suitability of the various RP
systems to different shapes, volumes, wall thickness, etc.

I could probably come up with some samples if needed.
