I believe this map is pretty accurate regarding the location of aforementioned lines.

Line 4 Phase 1
Line 6 Airport Line
Line 10 Formerly Line 1 West Extension (cross the Yangtze)
Line 11 Nanjing - Tianchang Metropolitan Express Line, Design finalized and site under prep
Line 12 Nanjing - Hexian Metropolitan Express Line, pending environmental impact study.

Out of those Line 3, 3W, 6, 10, and 11 are all suppose to be completed before the 2013 Youth Olympics.
How about the line crossing Dashengguan Mega Bridge? Is it done?

^ That would be Line 12, as you can see from the diagram above it's the light pink line parallel with the double blue CRH line crossing the Yangtze. Construction of the line hasn't started yet, they are still doing environmental impact study and relocating residence from future construction sites.

Lines 4 and 6 are described as "metropolitan express" lines, unlike "metro" lines including 1 and 3.

How different, technically, is line 6 from 1, and how incompatible is it therefore?

Line 4 in its phase 1 form is completely compatible with other metro lines and it's mostly under ground through the city. Similarly Line 6 is also compatible with the rest of the lines except it has more elevated sections after leaving the downtown area. Line 4 uses 6 A cars and Line 6 uses 6 B cars.

Line 4 has the possible connection to Yizheng and Yangzhou in the future and Line 6 is planned to connected to Gaochun so they are characterized as metropolitan express lines.

I note that Line 1 connects Nanjing South Station with Nanjing Station, and Line 3 shall do the same on a different route.

But while Line 6 does connect Lukou Airport with Nanjing South, it does not continue to Nanjing Station. Reaching Nanjing Station requires connection at Nanjing South.

Shoudnīt sending Line 1 or Line 3 trains on Line 6 at Nanjing South give better connections between Nanjing Station and Lukou Airport?

Which shall be the faster way to reach an airport from Nanjing Station: trying to reach Lukou Airport with a connection at Nanjing South, or a direct train to Hongqiao Airport?

Thanks. I was trying to find Dashengguan Bridge on my last Beijing-Shanghai HSR trip. But I missed it back and forth. Maybe it took the HSR train too short time to pass it so I didn't even notice.

No the airport line is still after all an express line, if you look at the Line 6 set up it has very few stations compare to Line 1, the best course of action for people want to travel from the airport to Nanjing Station is ride Line 6 to Palace of Ming station and get a taxi through the under water tunnel below Xuanwu Lake. It'll probably be twice as quick compare with riding through Line 1. Also Lukou Airport is still pretty small and mainly for Nanjing locals, so the travel demand to Nanjing Station is low, even for the occasional Jiangsu and Anhui travels they'll most like go through Nanjing South.

Dashengguan Bridge allows Beijing-Shanghai trains to pass through at full speed so at 300km/h it only takes around 25 seconds to pass.

Here is probably a better illustration of what's operational (solid color) and what's under construction (semi transparent).

Tunneling started on Nanjing Metro Line 10 crossing the Yangtze River. The TBM will travel 8m per day and finish the 2800m under water section in about a year.

I observe that the extension of Line 6 beyond Nanjing South is not under construction and not open soon.

Therefore there shall not be any direct connection from Lukou to anywhere in central Nanjing.

The next station on Shanghai-Beijing High Speed Railway from Nanjing South towards Beijing is commonly said to be Chuzhou.

Yet the map clearly shows a "Jiangpu Station" on the railway on the west bank of Yangtze.

Who stop at Jiangpu Station?

Jiangpu Station is a stop on the Shanghai-Chengdu HSR, Shanghai-Beijing trains do not stop there.

Sorry - on closer examination Xianlin is indeed a big region.

Including Xianlin station (on HSR and Metro Line 8), Xianlin Centre (on Metro lines 2 and 8), Nanjing University Xianling Campus (on Metro line 2) and Xianlin East (on Metro lines 4 and 15).

Which HSR trains stop at Qixia Station? Nanjing-Shanghai, Nanjing-Yangzhou, or both?
