2. Part 15 allows unlicensed transmission in some frequency ranges at low
   power. (47 CFR 15)

I believe Part 15 allows transmission on most frequencies below a certain power/duty-cycle threshold.

3. Test systems using cables and dummy loads which keep signals
   contained do not need a license.

Signal generators of arbitrary complexity do not need a license or FCC approval other than manufacturer/seller's assurance of unintended/conducted emissions are within Part 15.
