comment Why has the Mishnah Berurah become the Authoritative Halachik Work instead of the Aruch haShulchan?
+1. MB collects rather than paskens (though he does). Aruch HaShulchan goes through the sugya and gives a psak - which isn't always an accepted psak (Cholek on SA, RMA etc.)

comment Matzah Shemurah on the 8th day of Pesaḥ (in the Diaspora)
@Yehoshua - הציבי לך ציונים. Mitzvot are meant to be done in Israel, out of Israel it's only practice. This doesn't actually necessarily mean that all is drabanan.

comment Why is precedent set by individual rabbis, not courts?
Seconding DoubleAA. Regarding the second issue - other gedolim might disagree with this one as well. This enhances the question, not answers it.
