comment How to scale Tikz drawings and text together?
Thank you for an interesting answer. I haven't accepted it --- sorry --- as in the end I chose to go with Martin's, because I already have a fair bit of trouble getting my head round TikZ' multiplicity of frames of reference.

@Martin Scharrer: The font in itself isn't too important; you may care to change the fonts to something you can compile...

comment How to scale Tikz drawings and text together?
@Seamus: In principle, I would be happy to use scalebox, but would it scale the fonts in a correct typographically respectful manner? (Ie not just "explode the bitmap")

comment Vertical lines are being broken up (disrupted) by the horizontal booktabs lines
To reinforce @Joseph Wright, Simon Fear does say, pretty clearly, that vertical lines in tables are a typographic abomination. My guess would be that if you want vertical lines, then booktabs isn't for you.

comment If pagestyle equal to… — How should I ask it?
Perhaps you could tell us a little more about what you want to achieve? To my admittedly old blinkered way of thinking, "the document commands the pagestyle", yet you are asking that "the pagestyle commands the document". Some of us may find that a bit of a strange new idea; I'm sure we'd all like to understand it better.

comment Remove colon in the caption of a figure if the caption is empty
yes, that's a reasonable assumption, but we're all "old friends" here (including you) so we save a bit of time, space, and life-keystrokes by taking the politeness as a given... Welcome.
