comment Mitzvos on Mount Sinai?
"Both periods of 40 days happened after the 10 commandments." Yes but the torah had not yet been given, see Chasam Sofer Parshas Yisro as that is the reason why Moshe broke the Luchois in order to stop the Torah from making it a Halocho. "Not to mention that certain mitzvos were given before matan torah, e.g. Rosh Chodesh. " You are right but wasnt Oiver on any of those , the question is talking about Kiddush, Seudas Yom tov etc etc

@avi in your case effectively you are not arguing, just saying that the gadol's case no longers exists. However, I am refering to case where there is no way out to explain your reasoning other then a direct machlokes on a gadol like Reb Moshe's Teshuva

comment Who is the composer of Haneiros Halolu?
That would be based on when and who wrote Masches Sofrim. It would presumably be written by the author and that would explain why they felt the need to quote it. Because they only quoted things that were recently implemented. Otherwise I dont think there is a known author

comment Need to treat a kippah respectfully?
Since it is not brought down as a halacha not to do it, that leaves us with Hashkafah, not Halachah! I took your point to heart about quoting, but i dont think it is nessescary here. Thanks
