I think all of your action points are worth discussing -- and  

I know that some cheap hosts no longer support Drupal because it it  
takes too much resources.  Bluehost.com, one of the biggest hosting  
companies, removed Drupal from their default install system (while  
other software like Joomla! and Wordpress are still available).  I  
believe you can still install Drupal manually, but no longer through  
their one-click CPanel setup.

  Action point: make Drupal use less resources.
