1 "3200 is only $2 more than 2666 so I'm not sure why the slower speed even exists."
Non-Z370 motherboards of that generation (like the B360) won't run anything faster than 2666.  I had forgotten that and bought my son 32GB of 3000 a couple weeks ago, and was reminded of that when I installed it and saw it in the BIOS running at the slower speed, and there wasn't an XMP option.
Why the price difference is so small, I dunno.  Probably an accountant said "we have to make the faster stuff more expensive, even if it's only technically so, or people will complain."

2 "They said no, arguing that a standard charger port that works on all phones would provide a standard charger port that works on all phones. "
A better reason is (IIRC) what actually happened ten years or so ago.  I believe the EU standardized on USB mini B right as micro B was coming out.

3 Yes, someone did standardise on mini B, I forget whether the EU or an industry organisation.  Of course, given the failure rate of micro B, maybe that wasn't entirely a bad choice.

4 Micro was the "voluntary standard" for data-enabled smartphones in the EU from 2009-2014. Apple signed onto the agreement, but shipped an adapter rather than changing connectors.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
