 Some standardization work for BGP convergence is
going on BMWG of IETF.
http://ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-bmwg-bgpbas-01.txt
 They consider only single device convergence and
mostly external measurements. I have found the route
flap test useful.

 It also has a companion terminology document.
(http://ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-bmwg-conterm-03.txt)

If you are more particular on performance in the
forwarding plane, consider RFC 2544. I have not gone
through the RFC
though(http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc2544.txt).
