1. and 3. wouldn't be too much of an inconvenience. 2. Would be a game quitter for lots of people interesting in reputation which is why I think it won't happen. The reputation system is so much like the fleet advancement systems that I believe that 1. is very possible and 3. won't happen since the Tier 1 Fleet Requistion projects are the same cooldown as the Tier 3 Fleet Requistion projects. Therefore, I believe that all projects will have a maximum duration of 40 hours and you don't need to purchase Mk X equipment to get Mk XII equipment.
