comment Indenting both label and content in description-environment
Thanks for that, but tabular will not be feasible as there will be frequent pagebreaks and footnotes in these lists.

If you put the information from your comments into an answer, I'd be happy to accept that.

comment Equivalent to graphicx draft/demo option for tables
This is obviously useful for writing a text, but it doesen't really help for layouting a book with many table-floats which have to be arranged properly. For the latter it would be crucial to do as egreg suggests above: Measure the tables in one run and use the precise dimensions to reserve the appropriate space in the draft run.

comment XeLaTeX RAM usage problem (bug?)
Unfortunately I cannot confirm, that plain-ttf retains its kerning when handled by the OpenType engine. I've tried a couple of fonts here, but if you want to compare a readily available one, you could try OpenBaskerville-0.0.75.ttf: Adding [Renderer=ICU] to \setromanfont will cancel its (rudimentary) kerning on XeTeX 3.1415926-2.5-0.9999.3, fontspec v2.3c. Can this be because I'm still using Lion? While waiting for TeXLive 2014 I'll rather rebuild the fonts than using unreleased XeTeX -- I depend on this TeX-install to work...

Rebuilding the fonts to OT-ttf would make the fonts work properly, wouldn't it? I have to talk with the designer about it... I also get the same leak with plain ttf (without OT). Does this mean that these are rendered by the AAT-engine?

comment XeLaTeX RAM usage problem (bug?)
Loosing the ligatures would be ok (tex-text will work for most Latin scripts at least), but [Renderer=ICU] also cancels the kerning-tables, which isn't an option for me. But I can work with it for the correcting/proofing, which will spare me a lot of time. If you say “for now” -- are we talking weeks, months or years? Just asking to be able to plan my way around the problem.

comment XeLaTeX RAM usage problem (bug?)
The result of the compilation is fine here, too. This code is only a show-case for the problem that XeTeX hogs massive amounts of RAM when one uses certain fonts and the file gets big. If you increase the number of the iterations, you'll very soon get to a point where even new computers will take way too long to compile and get unresponsive.
