comment Seemingly simple block matrix
I see what you mean now, WRT (Q3). I agree, and perhaps will do it. This was the motivation behind defining these Js in the first place: they are large and unsightly. WRT (Q1), This basically means combining my last attempt from last night (the edit below my original post) with your fantastic \mc trick. I tried it, and works famously. Thanks.

(Q2) I meant the extent of the raisebox, so one needn't manually adjust. (Q3) You mean to beautify the code, rather than the typeset product, right?

comment Seemingly simple block matrix
Thanks, this seems to get me what I want. When I added content to some of the zeros, it pushed the Js out of alignment, which I manually adjusted. Q1) How did you arrive at .6\normalbaselineskip? Q2) Can you think of a way to make the spacing automatic? Q3) Could you elaborate on your final comment about assigning labels to components?

comment How do you setup a TeX document to self publish a book online?
It's not the turn-key solution you're asking for, but my highest recommendation is to read Peter Wilson's manual for the memoir class (Google memman.pdf). It is not only a technical manual for the class itself, but a wonderful guide to creating top quality books with emphasis on typesetting for optimal readability and style. You will find yourself referencing it again and again.

comment Why are Beamer subsubsections evil?
I believe you are right about the granularity. I don't think there are technical issues surrounding their usage. They just don't make a very good presentation.
