comment Siddur & chumash — which gets stacked on top?
Mesorah. It's the practice in my family and I've noticed that it seems to be how other frum Jews act too. Of course you can look at the above quote from the Shulchan Aruch, but mesorah is a great source too.

comment Why is techeles not universally accepted?
This is the reasoning that I've heard given in support of the opinion not to wear techelet. I don't think that the same reason applies to Har Habayit, but what Techelet and Har Habayit have in common is that they represent changes in reality/practice and are therefore rejected by some.

Are you referring to the IDF or the American Army?

comment Formal Hebrew honorific for one's mother
I've seen the custom to use the honorific "Reb", which is used for a non-rabbi, but using the title "Rav" where that person doesn't have Semicha seems problematic to me. Having said that, I have come accross this practice in Charedi yeshivot, where not having semicha is the exception rather than the rule.

comment Formal Hebrew honorific for one's mother
Agreed. I'd translate it as "The Lady"
