Absolutely.  I do NOT recommend making an effort to get test coverage
over existing code just for the sake of coverage - in my experience
this usually leads a lot of work for brittle and not terribly useful
tests.  Put tests only around the areas you are about to change.  Over
time the coverage will grow.

Not a bad idea.  Normally I'd recommend just going with an established
bug tracker like Trac or Lighthouse, but since Org is so great for
managing tasks it seems only right that the developers should "eat
their own dogfood" by using Org to track tickets :-)
