Whenever my seasoning starts to get a bit low (usually from over-vigorous scrubbing), I use it as the perfect excuse to make cornbread. I throw some butter in the skillet and put it in the oven to preheat while I make the batter. Once the batter is done, pour it in over the hot melted butter and then bake as usual.
It sort of acts as a reseasoning, but without the feeling of tedium waiting for 'nothing' to bake.

Aside from falling, I am a total klutz on flat terrain and would likely bonk my head (or put out an eye) on one like the center top picture or the second one on the bottom. Some are very nice looking, if squeam-inducing (not one for heights, either), but I'd think long and hard before having something like this installed.

I listen for how the coffee beans sound when they reach the right consistency for the French press (we have a small electric blade grinder). Most of the rest I hadn't thought about, but you covered them. My mom had taught me the tapping on the bottom of a loaf of bread.
