Not overly concerned with 2 & 3 but 1 is a must
If 3 had been enforced 11 years ago Tendulkar would have been not out and that game wouldn't have ended in an empty stadium.
Meh @ 2. I mean there's no downside to closing off the loophole but I reckon there's bigger fish to fry than closing off a loophole for something which still happens so rarely. Strikes me as over-officious, rather than ridding the game of an insidious cancer.
All 3 seem either reasonable, or like 1, begs the question "why has this not been done already?"

Don't get where you're coming from at all, in the slightest bit, here Alex. Completing the stroke while retaining enough balance not to fall out of your crease is a basic requirement of successful batsmanship. If you make a mistake and fail in this respect, you deserve to lose your wicket.

I thought they might change the rules (or perhaps they're playing conditions) to the ball itself having to cross the rope, rather than have all these replays to see if the fielder's big toe crossed the line as he slid to collect the pill.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
^^ Would be in favour of that myself actually.
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
