@HeikoOberdiek Thanks for the tip. I have updated my question with a summary of the answers, or at least my understanding of them. If I have made any errors, please let me know. Thanks.

@HeikoOberdiek Thanks for your answer. I downloaded the PDF, but could not figure out how to extract the .dtx file. Could you point to a repository or a download site for the code or file? It seems like a good idea to output the standard LaTeX warning in this case, since it makes it more likely tools like AucTeX will take notice of it. Do you know how to write a standalone tikzmark macro that will produce "the usual LaTeX warning"? If so, could you post it here?

comment Odd behaviour with arrows and multipart rectangles
@PeterGrill: You're right. So, any idea what is going on here? What is the difference between edge and to, why would it affect the result, and do you agree this is a bug?

comment Minimize automatically the page size of the PDF outputs
Mico, thanks for the tip. The \settowidth worked when nothing else did. @MartinScharrer: Is this the best one can do when using the standalone package?

I think using the shorten option to the arrow path is a better choice to stop the arrows obscuring the labels that writing the labels over the arrows. I didn't think such an option existed, so didn't look for it. :-)

One thing I don't understand is, wrt 2 (the double headed arrows issue) you explicitly have latex'- in (for example) \path [latex'-, thick] (leftrow6.one south) edge[out=270, in=270] node {}(tuplebottomrow); In my example, I use just \path[line]... where line is defined with \tikzstyle{line} = [draw, -latex', thick]. I don't understand why one worked and not the other.
