I think - when you're going to make use of interface - you should  
make this a contrib module, or only use and port the wrapper  
functions into some separate .js file.. I do almost know for sure,  
drupal core will _never_ ship with the jQuery Interface library..

No, but perhaps that is because we do not have any drag-and-drop  
yet.. ;-)

I think this is a matter of personal opinion.. But, I personally like  
automatic (on-drop) saving more than with the extra interaction  
(using a button perhaps)..
