comment RGB and CMYK: Why both?
“RGB 256 colors of each shade” — because 8bit = a 0-255 range. Are you talking about what’s technically possible or what the human eye can see? I assure you that RGB 16 16 16 can represent 281,474,976,710,656 different colours (this is very basic programming theory).

comment Thin font output
I agree. Lots of thin typefaces simply can't be used at small sizes for screen design (or print design in some cases).

comment Extracting layers from psd
One massive caveat to this technique: New documents will likely have a global light of 120º, but the source document might not. This could potentially change many layer styles, altering the output. This isn't how I'd do it.

"RGB is capable of creating around 16 million colors" — RGB 8 8 8 is. RGB 16 16 16 or RGB 32 32 32 can have more.

The document's colour depth can be seen under the Image > Mode menu. It should say "8 Bits/Channel" or similar. "image quality will suffer" — Please add more info about that.

Are you using 8bits per channel, or 16bits, or 32bits? Are you saving a PNG-24 image? If you're saving a PNG-24 and using 8bits per channel in Photoshop, the PNG can (and should) be perfect. We'll need to know more about the situation though.

comment Copying layer comp positioning in Photoshop CS
I don't have an answer for this, because I use Groups instead of Layer Comps. I've found Layer Comps to be really, really frustrating to use for app states when designing for iOS, so I don't use them.

comment How can I achieve a sharp pixel perfect stroke effect in Photoshop?
When the distance is 0, the angle doesn't matter.

Oh yep, I should have included that. @mrdwab's suggestion is a good one :)
