comment External references: Cannot reference memoir labels in other document classes
I suspect my usage of other reference related packages are causing some interference, but I do not have the time to investigate. The solution in your answer works, although I have to use \externaldocument{chapter} for each chapter file as a workaround.

comment External references: Cannot reference memoir labels in other document classes
Great! It seems however, that bad things (TM) happen when calling \externaldocument{thesis}, when thesis \includes chapters. I've accepted your answer, but other should note this limitation.

comment Why do we use the Latex logo when referring to Latex in text?
I suspect that Lamport named LaTeX using the two first characters of his last name in the early 80's and that the confusion arose about a decade later with the popularization of the internet. In that regard I believe Lamport's choice was unfortunate but I would not call it bad per se as he did not have the gift of foresight :)

comment How do I turn off equation auto numbering
I would strongly advise against this method, as math typeset in text-mode (ie. using $) and set in display-mode (ie. using a dedicated environment) have quite different spacing to the text above and below. On top of that, certain characters are typeset differently, as @Mico mentions, and even though \displaymath takes care of this, the spacing will remain wrong.

comment Keeping tables/figures close to where they are mentioned
As @WillRobertson mentions in this answer, graphics and tables may be too large. When resizing isn't an option, I usually combine multiple figures into page sized floats and use [p] in combination with \afterpage{\clearpage} to place multiple figures on (preferably) right pages. In my opinion, it leads to a document with greater readability.

comment What packages do people load by default in LaTeX?
Depending on taste, you may want to use [osf] instead of [sc] to get old style numerals as well as the real small caps and better kerning. I for one find old style numerals prettier and classier than lining figures in text mode (using [osf] will keep lining figures in math mode).

comment xparse regression? Unable to create environment with single optional argument
Thanks. I'll wait a few days, try again and hope that the fixed version will allow terminating optional arguments.
