Schwalbe Rock Razor Tire - Review
Well, this idea has been done before. My personal favorite tire (Specialized Eskar) was discontinued because it was similar (though it has more center tread). The issue, from a sales perspective, is that most riders are not very good. So committing to a turn is not usually a strenth. So, most will settle for a tire that gives them confidence rather than an out-right performer.

To the Point: Power Meters
My guess is spider based power meters have their own built in inaccuracies since it is much more difficult to accurately measure strain on a spider. You have multiple load bearing beams and multiple ways for your force to be transfered. I would bet the error in left-right power transfer is probably similar to the error in computing strain in a spider. I would think the most accurate would be through a hub where you have it straight laced drive side and crossed on nds (so you could measure the strain going through the body of the hub, which would act like thin walled cylinder strain). Though that method would be the most complex and add unsprung weight (as was noted in the article).

First Look: X-Fusion RV1 DH Fork - Taipei Show
The screw through or QR style set ups for thru-axles is not as stiff as when you have pinch bolts. It actually makes a significant difference, expecially with long travel forks. that's it. It isn't standards or spacing or anything like that.

Pinkbike Poll - Air Suspension in World Cup Downhilling
Actually, nitrogen has a slightly higher gas constant than air (54.99 vs 53.34) which means the pressure will vary MORE with temperature. The only reason nitrogen is used instead of air in some applications is if there are potential oxidation issues in the application (which there are not with a fork).
