puzzling (to me, anyway), is that occasionally when I press "w" the

the template, complete with a "w" keyed in at point.

This seems to be a bug in org-annotation-helper.el.
org-remember must be called like this:

(org-remember nil ?w)

instead of like this:

(org-remember ?w)

Furthermore, in order to get %i as the region, you need to
select the text in the *org-ann* temporary buffer, after inserting
the text.  So after "(insert region)", maybe you need something

(goto-char (point-max))
(set-mark (point-min))

An you need to have transient-mark-mode on for this.
This is a hack, I think it is actually better to use %:region in
the template instead.

When I say "w" and force the choice, the
contents of the buffer are not what I expect: I get the time stamp
from %u, and the link from %c, but *not* the selection from %i.

When I use the %i variable in the template, I get the same thing you
describe -- the selection doesn't show up in the note created from the
template. When I use "%:region" instead of "%i", it does show up as
