comment Reduce Spacing In $<a>$
I would use $\langle x\rangle$ instead of $\left<x\right>$, because \left and \right sometimes create delimiters of the wrong size and may also have other unwanted effects. I think $\bigl\langle x\bigr\rangle$ and $\bigl<x\bigr>$ come out exactly the same, though.

comment Getting less space in “$V$,”
But if you type For all $V,$ the theorem holds., then you don't get the "extra-stretchable and less-shrinkable" space after the comma, right? (I'm assuming we're using the default \nonfrenchspacing.) But if we're using the Computer Modern fonts, and the font outside the math is Computer Modern Roman, then the commas in $V$, and $V,$ will look the same, right?

comment Upright parentheses in italic text
\textup is a standard LaTeX 2e command. amsart does define \upn as shorthand for \textup. You can use \rom for \textup in amsart only if you're in compatibility mode.

comment Selectively turn off hyperref links
Would it be that bad to have clickable links all over if they didn't have any special colors or boxes around them in the PDF?

comment Defining custom commands is bad style?
It's not the point of the answer, but instead of \stackrel{\circ}{W^2_1}, wouldn't you want to use \overset{\circ}{W^2_1} or possibly \mathring{W}^2_1? (\stackrel makes the W^2_1-with-a-\circ-over-it into a relation symbol for spacing purposes.)

comment About big parenthesis larger than Bigg
Great, but your code should also define \vastl, \vastm, and \vastr commands that work along the lines of \bigl, \bigm, and \bigr, right? Also \Vastl, \Vastm, and \Vastr?
