comment Biblatex dashed entries with “sortname” and “shortauthor”
You could use a biber sourcemap to change all Lennon names to something the same and then dashes would work. This way you don't have to change the source .bib.

comment How to use DeclareSourcemap to add default value to a field
How about \step[fieldsource=hyphenation, notmatch=".", final]? This will only continue if the field is blank.

comment Biblatex-biber bug
This is very strange. The "cache" is just where biber unpacks itself to on the first run after install of a new version. It stores no data about the actual work it does there. It does store some data in system temp dirs which depend on the OS. It could conceivably be that the cache location where it unpacks to is monitored and cleaned up by some other process which breaks it but it's unlikely. We'd need to know the version, the OS and the output of biber --cache too.

comment Compress 5-6 to 5f. in a citation's postnote: \rangelen in \ifnumequal
Yes, the semantics are a bit silly in some cases but the ones decomposing unicode roman numerals from Unicode composites are actually very nice and would be horrible to do in TeX without a NFKD library. For example, calculating a range in romans numerals like "U+2165 U+2160 - U+216B" - that's the Unicode precomposed "VI" followed by "I" to make "VII" and the end of the range is the precomposed "XII". The rangelen should be "6". The same as if it was "U+2166 - U+216B" or even ASCII "VII-XII". Hard to do in TeX ...

It will be 4.0/4.0 and these are already available in the EXPERIMENTAL folders on SF.

comment Biblatex: problem with defernumbers
That two runs after biber is normal - it's necessary as the .aux file has to pass some values to a second run. It's mentioned in the biblatex manual.

I have re-opened bug github.com/plk/biblatex/issues/213 for this. I have also updated the biblatex 3.0 DEV beta on Sourceforge with a fix if you can test it.

Hmm, can you try biber 2.0 dev version with biblatex 3.0? biber 1.9 isn't compatible with biblatex 3.0.
