comment Engine revs up when braking
I don't have much difficulty accelerating afterwards, unless you mean immediately afterwards. Once the RPMs normalize around 2000 - 2100 RPM (which is where they sit when you're going 55 - 65 mph usually), I can accelerate normally. If yours is being sluggish, you may want to get it looked at (or maybe someone here can suggest what the problem might be so you could fix it yourself).

comment Slower Engine Start When “Cold”
Very interesting answer, and one that definitely makes sense based on my admittedly limited knowledge of the fuel system. Do you know if this is a problem, short or long-term, that should be fixed? Aside from the fact that it probably wears out the starter faster than it would if fuel pressure were always maintained. And for the record, my fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump are OEM, never been serviced. I've only had oil, filter, and tire related service on this particular car so far.

comment Slower Engine Start When “Cold”
Sure, I could probably try this. What made you suspect the battery, though? The engine sounds fine when it cranks up, and I drive my car for long distances every day back and forth to work so that should be enough to keep the battery charged. The little ~1 second hiccup is what concerns me... if it's the battery struggling to provide enough juice, wouldn't that make it sound like a crying baby when cranking (and crank slower)? I've heard a car trying to start on a dead battery before and it doesn't sound anything like that.

comment Should I change my tires so they all match?
My spare is just that -- a spare, emergency tire -- it's not meant for continuous use. It definitely isn't the same model of tire as the original 4.

comment Should I change my tires so they all match?
Good info, but I never do anything but use the car on reasonably well-maintained, legal, public asphalt roads to get from point A to point B. I usually go the speed limit or just a few mph over.
