I'd mention that wildcards are also searched depth-first, and that if a 
wildcard in the current context matches, a more specific extension in an 
included (or switched) context will NOT get executed.

This is the most confusing part for me.  I was under the impression (and it 
always seemed to work) that wildcards were searched DEAD LAST, since an 
included context with an extension with fewer (incl. 0) wildcards was a 
better match than an extension with more wildcards.

What's scary (to me) is that my dialplans have been working just fine until 
very, very recently.
