\relative c' { \time 3/4<<  {<cis a'>4<b fis'>2 } \\ { d2. }>>  }

Produces the attached output.  Is there a way to get it so that the dot does 
not collide with the notehead (w/o resorting to extra offsets and the like)?
I don't think so.  You'll need 'force-hshift.


Agreed. I tried a number of other things, but h-shift worked out of the box.

Perhaps a stupid question - in traditional engraving, is there ever an instance 
where, in 2 voice polyphony, the note column w/ a downward pointing stem is 
placed to the right of note column with an upward pointing stem?

Here's an example from a Schott score.
