Great job as always Unabomber. This should be required reading.
One small point: Under "When should I rev match" you say, "There are those of the opinion that rev matching will save wear and tear on the transmission synchros though." I think this statement is more applicable to double-clutching. Rev matching doesn't do anything for synchros, as you are still using them to spin up the intermediate shaft.
A more accurate statement for rev matching would be "There are those of the opinion that rev matching will save wear and tear on the clutch".
