@percusse, indeed! That answers my question. Thanks.

@cfr, because the second one is not a close path.

comment Is there a makebst-like style definition helper for creating biblatex styles?
I don't think such a tool would need to cover the whole power of biblatex. For many bibliography styles makebst is good enough. So a tool that asks the same or similar questions and spits out an .bbx file would be enough for many people. The rest who needs the special capabilities of biblatex could take it as a starting point.

comment Can I write a range in [0-1) style with siunitx?
@SebastianSchmitz, for angles you would need the non-existing \angrange. @JosephWright, maybe this is some missing feature?

The pgfplots manual is good resource. You are wellcome.

comment pgfplot: 3d function plot
That are two questions :). For papers, you usally have to provide the figures as separated image files. Most journals do only provide a basic set of packages. For your thesis you can do it as you want. I prefer to have them inside of the thesis, because all definitions of colors and fonts, and package options are automatically shared. Downside is that the compilation takes some (long) time.

comment pgfplot: 3d function plot
No, in general you do not need lua. The pgf math library is very good. In your special case in the previous question, there seems to be an accuracy problem. I guess it is something like subtracting very large values, which differes only minimal. Here accuracy becomes very important. BUT this is the first time I read about those problems with pgfmath, so it's not a problem you face often.

comment pgfplot: 3d function plot
Is this really the function you want to plot? Or do you intend to plot the function from the previous question and the one given here is just a place holder?

comment Using sans font for tick labels in pgfplots
Thanks, that was what I was looking for. The only flaw is the wrong minus sign. But I found a solution to fix this, which I will post later.

comment How to ensure that LaTeX-generated pdfs print correctly from print-on-demand services
If it's only two characters you are using from this font, you could also make a high-resolution screenshot of those characters and include them via \includegraphics. Of course it is not the most elegant solution but should work and is easier then to rasterize the whole document.

comment Is it possible to make siunitx typeset exponents in “cramped” style?
I have to thank. The selnolig is a nice package. You should sell it to surkamp, I'm reading a book of them currently and I'm really annoyed of their wrong usage of ligatures.

right! There it is not a real problem since I rarely use inline math with capitals and superscripts, else I probably had ask a different questions with the same answer. ;-)

BTW, I'm using lualatex instead of xelatex because of your selnolig package :)

Well, this will also change inline math equations, but I think that's a good idea anyway.

@Mico, I'm actually using Pagella in my working document and I like it's high black/white ratio, but I will give the increased linespacing a trial.
