comment What is piece 4211642 from 10179 - UCE Millenium Falcon?
I've put the UCS Millenium Falcon together, and do not recall this piece at all. My guess is that's its added to the instructions in error.

comment When did Lego decide that it was okay to put a stud into a technic hole?
Wow. Great answer. I had not seen the slides before. You are correct, the slides explicitly state that the use we're now seeing is legal.

I hadn't seen that yet. It looks like they are keeping the technique to just a single stud in a single hole. That's interesting!

comment How can I easily remove a jumper plate without a brick separator?
There's actually a new Brick Separator coming that has an offset anti-stud that can be used for jumper plates. Check out this Brothers-Brick article: brothers-brick.com/2011/10/05/…

It's also quite common to see Technic skeletons used inside of Lego builds to hang the rest of the pieces on. Lego itself uses this technique in their larger UCS Star Wars sets.
