Cool package, indeed. I especially like the non-JavaScript take that would free us from Acrobat/Reader. Are you aware of any non-Adobe PDF reader for OSX that can deal with OCGs?

Thank you for your hints: I edited my answer accordingly but not the result image, which confused me for a moment :-)

comment microtype settings for dummies
To be honest, I have always just used the defaults, that is, have thrown a plain \usepackage{microtype} to my document and left it for good. I always had the impression, that it makes my text look a lot better, especially in two-column mode. A more than nice side effect is that it often also reduces the number of pages (about a half page in a ten page two-column document), which more than once rescued me from having to edit the content of a paper just to fulfill the venues pages limit.

comment beamer: using \note<> and frame labels together creates multiply-defined labels
Well, I am mostly printing them out on paper. For this, I compile only a single version of the document, but apply this trick to ensure that every slide is followed by a notes page (containing text only). I then pipe the resulting PDF through pdfnup --nup 1x2 to get A4 pages with the slide on the top and the notes on the bottom.

Besides the TeXnical issues: How do you intent to use your notes in the end? If you are basically printing them out on paper I could suggest an alternative approach.

comment beamer: using \note<> and frame labels together creates multiply-defined labels
Working intensely with beamer I have got so many "multiply defined labels" warnings that I somehow got used to them. I have, however, never experienced any particular problem with them as they tend to end up on the same page. So besides compiler output aesthetics: Is there a concrete issue?

That sounds like a really interesting approach! Maybe you could improve your answer by elaborating on this in more detail and provide a complete MWE?

Sorry, but I just not understand your approach. Maybe you could clarify how exactly you direct copy-paste from your spreadsheet into LaTeX?
