    I will not argue with you on this one, and I do agree that modern (new) derailleurs have stronger return springs.

    Yes they are. The stickers on the originals (SLE, SLS) do not cover the entire depth of the rim. And the spoke count of 16F/20R don't match either.

    Yes, they might rub on the spindle if not secured properly.

    Since it's Di2, the electrical cable is soft enough to make tighter bends (AWG20 I think) without any problems.

    Use a 1/2" PVC pipe and gently tap around the the lip of the cup from the inside of the BB shell. Don't try to whack the cup out in one go if you plan on saving/reusing the cups.
