Note that none of these scripting solutions are really equivalent to the LongDescription property for the Element List since they require an element to already be in a document in order to get information on it (rather than just selecting it in the Element List).
Depending on how the docs are designed the CHM option or displaying HTML in the Resource Manager (inside IE) could allow you to display a list of all elements that someone could look at before insertion, or if a CHM was designed well it might include a table of contents that lists all elements, or a page with elements and some relatively short description for each. These could be displayed at any time (with no need to get input from the writer as to which particular element they are working with or want information on).
I have asked our development team to look at seeing if they can fix your #2 issue for our 9.0 release.
