I work for MapBox, where I work on a few mapping projects. I write over at macwright.org.

comment What is the purpose of having a separate Layer property for sphericalMercator?
You can do either, but often layers will have more or fewer zoom levels. As soon as there's a "every layer has X but this layer has Y" relationship, it gets harder to track. I'd rather be explicit about configuration, but it's essentially a judgment call.

comment What is the purpose of having a separate Layer property for sphericalMercator?
Okay, to be more clear: it isn't necessary - you can do one and/or the other. As far as specifying projection/settings in the map object or layer object, OL will check the layer object for a projection and then go to the projection on the map object. It's recommended to set all projection & zoom-level type settings on layers, so that you don't have configuration inheritance.

Nope. You might want to try CartoDB, but you should know that making things dynamic and making things performant are opposing goals.

comment Is there a paid service for accessing a PostGIS/OSM DB
This is the only answer that actually addresses the PostGIS part. Though, to be clear - CartoDB exposes a web API to PostGIS. There aren't any services that allow a socket-style connection to a server 'in the cloud'.

comment How to Validate a GeoJSON
The GeoJSON spec is at geojson.org - you linked to GeoJSON CSS, an unofficial extension.
