comment How do others manage their footnotes?
\Copy{lore}{\footnote{...}} is odd. And this is actually duplicating the sepfootnotes package. It's much simpler to go \sepnotecontent{lore}{...} and then \sepnote{lore}.

comment How to include all bibfiles in a directory?
What I find really cumbersome is having to run pdflatex with a -shell-escape flag. Correct me if I'm wrong: not even biblatex itself would be able to list a bib directory for bibfiles if the user didn't pass -shell-escape to pdflatex ?

comment Are command parameters protected against wrong capitalization in BibTeX?
I don't have a particular style in mind. I'm trying to make my BibTeX database neutral among styles. I don't want it to override how styles format my bibliography unless there is a specific reason for it to do so.

Does it? I don't know.

Sure. Maybe we should change the question to reflect a more interesting answer.

comment Are comments discouraged in a BibTeX file?
This is not about the warning but what exactly a BibTeX comment is supposed to be, and more important, as stated in the OP, whether comments are discouraged in a BibTeX database, as seems to be the case with how biber reacts to it. Suppose I'd like to have an annotated BibTeX database. What would be the proper or recommended way of doing it?

It's a comment. See this.

Are TeX comments % in BibTeX files a biber's extension or does it belong to the BibTeX format originally?

comment Which packages should I recommend to postgraduates in different academic disciplines?
But the package doesn't encourage that at all. It's simply useful to keep one's code cleaner. Many \footnote commands may disrupt reading LaTeX code.
