Great entry. However, some of the "don'ts" sound like authors following old school practices or authors who have never gone through the copy editing process before. You might want a separate set of instructions for first time authors. These instructions might include "revise the edited proofs," or, "create your index from the final proof copies, not the Word file you sent us." Etc. All painfully obvious from the standpoint of a regular, but not so much to a first time author.

Glad you have a place to vent... ha.

You could perhaps just direct authors to your blog.
