    I use: PostID/postname on those blogs that have a lot of posts (adult) where its bound that there will be duplicate headings (but not content)

    On my smaller blogs, i use /postname unless I need the category as keyword-enhancement

    Short permalinks are SEO friendly . For this you may use only /postname.

    I dont use short URLs. I use %category%/%post% and sometimes even %post_id% or %monthnum% - it just makes more sense that i structure my site to look like a huge authority site instead of a MNF. You'll never see a site planning to have millions of pages just use domain.com/post-name .

    Yes its correct, you may also want to use the plugin no category base to get rid of the word category within your permalinks.
