I have collected experience with TeX for quite some time and I am familiar with TeX programming. I have written pgfplots and several contributions to pgf/TikZ.

comment Interpolate grid data to obtain 3d smooth surface
Since you actually followed my guidelines (incrased the data accuracy), it might actually help others if you'd accept the answer and post whatever followups you might encounter in new questions.

comment Interpolate grid data to obtain 3d smooth surface
OK. sometimes "buggy" and "outdated" is the same -- I am unsure if evince belongs to that category (but I know for sure that xpdf and libpoppler does - I fixed these viewer bugs on my own).

comment pgfplots with gnuplot: 3d-surface/mesh plot and problems with number of samples
pgfplots does a good job at sampling the patches: your minimal example could be done with builtin sampling routines of pgfplots without gnuplot. However, it has no feature which does the job of isosamples (see @Pouya's answer below), not even if combined with raw gnuplot and gnuplot's isosamples key.

comment How to change \pgfplotstableset for different parts of a document?
Options live until the current TeX group ends. A TeX group is started by { and ended by }. It is also started by \begin{<someenvironment>} and ended by \end{<someenvironment>}. If you surrent parts of your document with curly braces, all key assignments inside of the braces will be limited to these braces.

comment Quiver plot with pgfplots: scale arrowheads with arrowsize
I see. What if you use 0.01 as smallest possible scale? It looks like a dot...

comment Is there a package that provides graphing in the style of Ed Tufte?
@MatthiasKauer thanks for the feedback and the solution. This answer has never been adapted to "production quality", so it might simply be a bug. Maybe you can collect some experience with it. I would appreciate feedback of sorts "hey, super tool, I consider it finished" or perhaps "okay... but it would need to do XYZ before I would really use it". Maybe it is time to consider next steps with it (i.e. write some production quality library out of it -- eventually).
