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.

comment Frequently loaded packages: Differences between pdfLaTeX and XeLaTeX
The textcomp package provides access to symbols from the TS1 encoding. In XeLaTeX, these can be directly entered or accessed via the macros from the xunicode package. So I'd say that textcomp is wrong and should be left out or replaced by xunicode.

Driver options are required if and only if you want to post-process a DVI file with something other than dvips (e.g., dvipdfmx).

comment Which command should I use for displayed equations?
amsmath.sty contains these lines: \DeclareRobustCommand{\[}{\begin{equation*}} \DeclareRobustCommand{\]}{\end{equation*}}. So \[…\] is exactly identical to the equation* environment when the amsmath package is loaded.

comment How to speed up a large plot?
The question is tagged tikz, so I suppose the plot is generated by Ti k Z or PGFPlots.

comment Recommendations for substitution of non-free fonts with LaTeX typefaces?
@mindcorrosive: If you can't use Gill Sans, then Plan B doesn't really work, and Plan A doesn't exist (there is no free substitute). Time for Plan C—Latin Modern Sans or some other free sans font.
