comment Fake math sizing using tokens assignment
Thanks a lot, in particular for the explanation of why this fails. Indeed, if I do \def\frac#1#2{{{#1}\over#2}} then it does work. I fear that's not the only situation where the distinction in how a group is built might cause my custom sizing command to fail. And come to think of it, there probably was a reason to use \begingroup…\endgroup in the first place. Too bad.

@egreg: Yes, I noticed. Do you mean to imply that this was due to issues like the one I'm writing about, and not a mere design decision? After all, it does support {foo \scriptstyle bar}, which has a very similar visual effect as a font size switch.

comment How much bigger are delimiters
Now that you quote it, I remember reading it at some point. The formula still doesn't explain why the delimiters are larger, since both terms are smaller than 2δ. (When I first read this, I had concentrated on 901>500 and completely missed that 901<2*500. Reading this as 90.1% helped!) But I believe that if I combine this with the fact that delimiter sizes are quantized by a whole number of extension character repetitions, then things start to make sense and I can reproduce TeX behavior.

comment Manual citation formatting
Looking at the sources, I noticed that while \cite and \citeasnoun come from har2nat, the support for \harvarditem appears to be coded directly into natbib. har2nat.sty is really small. Nevertheless, I do prefer the \bibitem style you used in your example, so I'll stick with that. Thanks a lot!

@Mico: That sounds like a good suggestion, and seems to work out of the box. Would you care to post that as an answer in its own right?
