comment letterspacing italic small caps automatically
@WillRobertson sc* just translates into \scdefault here. As for si vs. scit I'd say the former is more common (eg. nfssext), and I don't see any advantage in changing it. I'll add both to microtype.cfg anyway.

comment Tracking in full caps and italicized small caps
Yes, it's the same for good old pdftex, only that you need to specify the right encodings (ie. those from the default set smallcaps from microtype.cfg). [I've edited the answer accordingly.]

comment Keywords with spaces in Listings
You need to load inputenc with an encoding that (1) contains the non-breaking space and (2) is not utf8 because listings won't like it. (microtype.dtx uses latin1).

comment \SetTracking from microtype is ineffective with mathdesign
The family name is mdbch (not mdbhc), and the shape should be fsc (not sc).

comment Using letterspacing for better justification
@egreg Knuth himself actually preferred letterspacing over font expansion for justification, when he was given samples by Thanh (the first implementation of the hz algorithm in pdftex also allowed this method). (Cf. Thanh's thesis)

The soul package provides the \sloppyword macro to add glue between the letters of a word. For luatex, there is the chickenize package and its letterspaceadjust function.
