comment How to use declared TikZ functions in \foreach condition?
Ah, my question was not detailed enough. I edited it. I actually need two functions in the range. But \pgfmathresult is only one container.

comment Is usage of \ell instead of l in math mode best practice?
@T.Verron In Germany there are also other norms that have to be used by law. They are mostly compatible to the SI, but in some details they differ (\cdot instead of \times: 2 \cdot 10^5 instead of 2 \times 10^5). For liter several symbols are officially (l, L and \ell) allowed, but \ell is the most common from historical reasons.

If \ell can/should be used for liters also depends on the country, you are in. In German-speaking countries the \ell is commonly used for liters in all places, while in English speaking countries it's not.

comment Is usage of \ell instead of l in math mode best practice?
@ergeg But there are use cases when a specific symbol is common in a physics or mathematics group or theory. The symbol produced by \ell is common in statistical mechanics, for example, where the non-usage of it could leed to confusion in the community. Another example would be the distinction between the angular momentum in classical (l) and quantum mechanics (\ell), which is often made by choosing different symbols for the same letter.

comment Compile time optimized “area under analytical curve” plotting with pgfplots?
@MarcoDaniel Yes, if you just want to ad hoc fix or "workaround" the compilation time. But coming from a C++ background, I'd still like to produce optimized code that does not need precompiled stuff. ;)

These two (first prefered) look best by far, IMHO, compared to all other answers.

comment How to change part and chapter pages on KOMA-Script?
@MarcoDaniel I'm not yet sure about the layout. I hoped to learn how/where to change the layout at all to try some designs out. I have no problems with "low-level stuff" myself (redefining commands), if I just knew which ones are important. ;)
