An important question here is: is it important for M-} to ignore those \\?

Yes, that's usually the case.  But it's more trouble for the code to
enforce that fill-forward-paragraph-function only moves within the
current paragraph, so the extra power comes at no cost and you don't
have to use it.

Of course fill-paragraph-function sucks because it only applies to
fill-paragraph and not to fill-region.

No idea.  It's likely, but I really can't guarantee it.
