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

Sorry, what I meant was that everyone agrees that Sunday is the start of the week even if not the day of rest
