Default Using the Clip in MSC mode

I just told you everything I know about MP3 players, syncing, etc. Well, that's an exaggeration, because I've been reading posts here.

My computers run XP with MP10, and I've just ordered my first MP3 player - the Clip 1GB. I doubt I will ever buy music from an online service, and I would rather not involve Microsoft in the management of my Clip more than I have to. And I don't want to upgrade to MP11.

1. So I think this means I should put the Clip into MSC mode, and leave it there. But will playlists work in MSC mode? If they do, what should I use to create them?

2. I have a number of MP3 files with no tag info. In MSC mode, will I be able to see those files by filename? If not, what's the solution to that?

3. I will be listening to some lengthy podcasts - up to two hours long. In MSC mode, will the Clip remember where I left off - not just which file, but exactly where in that file?

4. If I do end up getting some Audible books, would I have to transfer those over in MTP mode?

4. Will the Clip let me store non-audio files on it and use it like a dumb thumb drive?

5. Is there any major downside to using MSC?

Thanks for any suggestions or clarifications.
