I agree with them all (I think :))
One thing, though... I thought that, after the third book, there wasn't a difference in the English and American versions (other than the covers)? There still is?
I also liked the Dumbledore weakness stuff, but felt it was a bit forced... I don't know... I still think she did an amazing job of tying so much together!

Re: Excellent observations/comments
There were fewer differences between versions for a while there, but there were definitely still differences.
With the sixth book, on second reading Zara and I read them together. I read the UK version aloud and she read the US version silently and stopped me whenever there was a difference. A lot of them had nothing to do with cultural or linguistic differences - they seemed to be editing difference. And there were whole paragraphs different in the section on Dumbledore's death.
