comment Is it possible to have a “real” \belowdisplayshortskip?
I'd say that the behavior (like all behaviors of TeX) is intentional. You can modify it only in LuaTeX where you can edit the internal lists and hook into TeX's processing.

\rvert and | are equivalent in this case because the class is ignored when a mathchar is used as a delimiter.

comment Drawbacks of XeTeX/LuaTeX
@Charles Stewart: With "stable" I mean something like the current pdfTeX situation–load microtype and be happy. Regarding XeTeX and LuaTeX: there are still too many issues related to micro-typography, many of which have only been fixed in unreleased versions.

comment Preparing PDF files for ebook readers, etc.
Actually you shouldn't use PDF at all for screen reading; a linear, paginated format is just not optimal. Try using a neutral source like DocBook and create an HTML and a PDF version from that.

comment Packages that need to be included in a specific order
Regarding hyperref: it's not the hyperref package that is to be criticized, but rather the LaTeX2e kernel, which seems to combine every possible software development antipattern in a single package.

Of course you have less trouble with inputenc in XeLaTeX, simply because you never load inputenc.

\usepackage does work like the #include directive, and if you could overwrite existing definitions in C, you'd run into the same issues that LaTeX has.
