comment Symbols instead of numbers as footnote markers
@FlybyNight: Yes (feel free to edit!), but in the meantime you can read "texdoc footmisc" for documentation.

@D.W.: 27 upvotes and only 1 downvote, so it is not just my personal opinion. :)

comment Text in math mode: inherit bold but not italics
Is there a painless way to make \mathsf{foo} look like \textsf{foo} if I am using \usepackage[charter]{mathdesign}\renewcommand{\sfdefault}{phv}, i.e., Charter as serif font and Helvetica as sans-serif font?

I like this alternative, even if it does not do exactly what I wanted. :)

Why not just use \text instead of \mbox; then it would also scale correctly?

comment Text in math mode: inherit bold but not italics
It seems that this version gives a missing font warning (just like my original MWE). I guess it would be better to first use \upshape and only after that \sffamily to avoid the warning, e.g., \text{\upshape\sffamily foo}?

comment titletoc: section titles ragged right
(Also, you can try to add \section{Lorem ipsum} before \section{\foo{}} in your example. Then you will see that the spacing between "Lorem" and "ipsum" in 1.1 is different from the spacing in 1.2 right below it.)

comment titletoc: section titles ragged right
(To better see what I mean, set e.g. \overfullrule=1mm and pay attention to the lines that are not marked with the overfull marker.)

comment titletoc: section titles ragged right
If I am not mistaken, the new version with \hyphenpenalty is still trying to make everything fully justified; you just get lots of overfull hboxes, so it "looks ragged". However, if you happen to have short enough words in the section titles, you will see that Latex is still stretching inter-word spacing to make the text as much fully justified as possible.

comment titletoc: section titles ragged right
Yes, the horizontal alignment looks wrong; the indentation of sections and subsections is missing, things stick out from left/right page margins, etc.
