I'm a condensed matter physicist who, despite a decade's experience with LaTeX, still has an awful lot of TeXnical details to learn.

Unfortunately this may not be as easy as it seems it should be - see the discussion at tex.stackexchange.com/q/4269/6984 (which is a more general version of the same problem).

comment Cleveref and breqn packages don't play nice together
Fortunately not every environment needs to be dealt with individually. If the environment number is incremented with \refstepcounter then cleveref should work automagically. If not, you can insert the patch of \refstepcounter into whatever command is used instead by hand - see my other answer.

comment Horizontal lines are showing up as low-resolution images
One final note: I believe the distinction between vector and bitmap images in this case is academic - in both cases the instruction is to fill a particular area of the page with a single colour. I.e., despite the publishers' software complaining about low resolution, the lines should look as intended when output at any resolution.

comment Horizontal lines are showing up as low-resolution images
Further to my previous comment: pdfimages reveals that, with the workflow as above but using ps2pdf instead of Acrobat, both fraction bars and horizontal rules are rendered as a 1x1 black image which is stretched to the required size - hence the error with resolution. I'm not sure where in the process this is introduced - the PostScript file is not very friendly to my (relatively inexperienced) eyes. I did notice, however, that when the file is compiled directly with pdflatex the lines are rendered correctly as vectors - would this be an option for you?

Re detecting the results: pdfimages may help - it will extract lines which are rendered as bitmap images for some reason but not vectors.

comment Creating Large Math Boundaries
@night owl: the \left...\right construction automatically resizes the delimiters to fit whatever's inside, so you only need one \rule to make both delimiters the right size.
