Audit Yourself Even Before Implementation
This is a great list of questions.  When it comes to big tech moves from one platform to another, I believe acting as though you have the tech already and are about to have a Security audit helps answer lots of questions.  Using documents like Common Criteria, for instance, to walk through targets of evaluation either by using the technical documentation of the product(s), whitepapers on other implementations, documented exploits, and so on.  I've been reading Raymond Pompon's IT Security Risk Management which develops a thorough audit plan that could be used for such a purpose.  Security pros should approach every acquisition the same way they'd do working with a client.  Set yourself up for success and know that once you've done your soft audit, then implemented, you could have an auditor walk in and you'd pass with flying colors.
