It'd end up being too general for it to work properly.

An extremely general AD rune page would probably look something like this though-

REDS: Straight armor pen
YELLOWS: Armor or Dodge
BLUES: CDR or Magic Resist
METAS: CDR or Armor Pen or HP

Half the characters you listed don't actually have mana, so all mana based runes are useless.

Other characters have shifting needs relating to CDR. While Tryndamere doesn't really need it, it's an extremely important stat for Renekton and Garen considering that there's exactly one (well, two, but one builds into the other) CDR item that doesn't have AP or mana tied to it. No, stop stacking stingers.

Caitlyn, Tryndamere and Rekenton find attack speed to be marginally more useful because it helps their passive abilities (yes, Tryndamere. More attacks means more potential crits, and since your gearing already has an Infinity Edge and a Phantom Dancer you do actually want to avoid running too many crit runes in your book.)

Consider checking out this rune page guide (http://www.squidoo.com/league-of-legends-rune-pages-guide), it should help you formulate some rune pages. acosn is 100% right though.

Also Armor Pen > AD overall, its been mathematically proven on this forum more times than i can count, try a google search if you want this confirmed. AD is viable over armor penetration on some junglers though.

AD runes are almost universally bad because they just don't give that much.

Because of the quantities that AD runes give versus armor pen runes it makes more sense to shut down your opponent's ability to mitigate your damage than improve your own AD.
