comment Footnotes per page spread
Pouya, thanks, that was useful. egreg, When footnotes are used only occasionally here and there, symbols might be a good solution. But when we have 3 or 4 footnotes per page, symbols are out of question. Even footnote-per-chapter approach is quite problematic because footnote number goes a way over 10, which I do not like. In cases like this, I personally prefer per page method. Still, I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds footnotes-per-spread method strange or confusing. :-)

comment Make MS Word document look like it has been typeset in LaTeX
Same applies to any tool out there, including *TeX. You cannot achieve great results without manual tweaking, sometimes a huge amount of it. I remember some production notes for "The LaTeX Companion": "[...] on maybe 10% of the pages [minor rewriting was needed] in order to avoid bad line breaks or page breaks [...] 45 long spreads, 25 short spreads, 230 forced page breaks, 400 adjustments to the vertical spacing, 100 other manual adjustments (other than rewriting)." Of course, even manual adjustments are easier done with LaTeX, but the point is that they're unavoidable in most cases.

comment Exact centering of full-page background image
@egreg, thank you for your insights which (as always), if not solving a problem at once, lead to a better way of doing things. For non-memoir classes, pointing out to geometry's own features showcrop and layoutsize was crucial and the problem at hand is solved easily, even if done manually. So, again, a big thank you to both of you :-)
