We had this discussion already.  IIRC, load could be used multiple

to be undoable.

OTOH, `unload-feature' exists for a reason; and packages that do
non-standard things (like redefining standard functions) can define
their own unload functions.

But question 3) was not about unloading, though I mentioned it at the
end; it was about the difference in the resulting 'autoload property
of function symbols depending on whether you use the autoloading vs.
the normal load/require mechanisms.

Before we coded this hack, there was a discussion on emacs-devel
because I had been surprised, too.

Couldn't AUCTeX just define AUCTeX-unload-hook and do whatever it is necessary?

Anyway, this is most emphatically not something that should be changed

Agreed. I didn't send a patch or even suggested a "fix" :)

But maybe it would be worth documenting something about it.

I think so.
