Thanks for a very thoughtful post - great stuff.
With regard to "6. For highly trafficed search terms, google should manually review the top 10-20 results to make sure they are returning the most relevant results." I'm pretty sure this is what is going on. However, the criteria given to the army of reviewers may need some tweaking along the lines of incorrect brand dominance.
