yes, but there could be a display of the effective luxury rate.

Not necessarily. There could be an option switch wheter you want WLTKD in
a city/all cities or not. Or you could say that gold is only taken to
content citizens and you'd need other means to get WLTKD. This would be
harder than it currently is, however.

yes. see above. apart from that I think rapture growth is far too
powerful, but thats just IHO.

The relation is, that with a uniform corruption level, corropution in
EVERY city increases when you found a city, which may cause unhappyness
which you have to check for, which increases micromanagement. If you don't
have to worry about riots you just have to check once in a while to get
rid of elvises (increasing trade output) in the one model or to check
wheater you can employ elvises or military to save gold in the other model
