ATB - Missed Grand
If we're discussing what the responses [i]should[/i] be, it seems pretty clear to me that 6 should be the worst, not 6, that the responses should get worse the higher they are (to 6). I would look to the Bridge World series Useful Space ...

"Answers to 5NT [i]should[/i] be:" Given that there are 4 steps ending in 6, there [i]should[/i] be more than 3 answers...
Negative Inferences
With screens (only) or without? During the auction is what "alert" implies, was that what was meant? "This demonstrates active ethics, even though not required by the regulations." Is this a suggestion that those who don't aren't actively ethical?
2 Board of Governors proposals
11 for 11? Guess that settles it then.

Anecdotal at best...imho
Bidding Hearts over Spades
"Observe that over 1 - (2/3) ?, the other minor would be clubs bid at a higher level and so the switch cannot apply." My recollection is that when I played switch, it was only in effect after a black suit overcall.
How do you play 4m in these bidding sequences?
Without discussion, I would assume setting trumps (a hand that would have jump-shifted if playing strong jump shifts). A picture bid is a fine agreement, but requires agreement. Likewise, setting trumps and asking for key cards -- fine, but only with agreement (or meta agreement).
ATB - 170 instead of 1010
"don't you think you're worth a 3 invite?" I don't know anyone who thinks 3 is invitational (to game anyway)...and therefore non-forcing.
Whats the meaning of 3S here ?
Even accepting (at least some of) this reasoning, doesn't partner being a passed hand make a difference?
Required to Continue?
"Majority of what?" I'm guessing not the majority of slaves or women...
