@Barry Those are obviously not meant to be taken literally. No one would tell you to dirty your hat on purpose to maximize Kavod Shabbat

@sabbahillel Can you source that cooking Treif violates Bishul? Cooking for a non-Jew is a gemara (Megilah 7b). Furthermore, can you explain how this concern would be relevant where the issue is Maras Ayin not Melacha per se. No one can tell why you are cooking.

@Anonymous It is a reference to a specific part of this book en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mishneh_Torah. You may want to check out this question judaism.stackexchange.com/q/18589/759

@Anonymous I know. Don't forget that most people's meat came from their "pet" chickens and lambs for millennia.

@sabbahillel So you can't walk around a grocery with Chametz items on the shelves??? This is preposterous. There is no issur of standing next to Chametz or of a having a goy stand on your property with a cracker in his pocket. Your question about cooking without eating is possibly the first interesting thing you've said so far, but I'd lump it with Hachana in that no one can tell who/when you are cooking for, so it's better than Tzina (like Igros Moshe above). (Your oft repeated hashgacha points are a waste of space as usual. Everyone agrees you have to work with your mashgiach if you have on)

@sabbahillel It would be nice if you would delineate precisely the problems you see. If there is no issue of owning it (as evidenced by my thought experiment of one who buy Chametz outside the Techum and then comes into the Techum: must he do Biur?? You can't see ownership), then what is the issue. Standing next to it? Touching it?

I know what the question said and you aren't reading my comments. I said the sale is happening in Israel (outside the community) so your supporting logic is poor. That's what I said and I stand by it. Perhaps your rabbi is right about the more common practice, but your supporting logic is very poor.

Can you elaborate more what exactly you are asking? The answers to 1 and 2 are God can do anything, and the answer to 3 is to get what He wanted.

FTR your reasoning is poor. Maras Ayin applies to Melacha not to owning things as you can't see ownership. You don't address this issue at all, but rather talk about tzina being absolute yet don't note any of the exceptions to the prohibition such as Igros Moshe OC 4:105 and Shevet HaLevi 7:65. You state that he can wear Tefilin in private yet you won't let a rabbi in Israel buy Chametz??? What of the fact that he is only bound while in the physical confines of the town? Why should the actions done outside the community matter? Note that Hachana (and 8th day generally) are only Derabanan.

Why must one lock away Chametz sold to a goy and rent him the space? That has nothing to do with BYBY. "general halacha" and "everyone does" are different. Are you then claiming this is the only opinion?
