comment How thick is the reciprocal of the squares
In the OEIS entry there's a comment by Frank Adams-Watters citing your paper. The first statement in the comment is "This set has zero density". Presumably this is wrong, and worth correcting? research.att.com/~njas/sequences/A108345

comment What's wrong with the surreals?
I actually remember one more disadvantage mention by Conway: equality is a defined relation, and a pretty subtle one at that. It's not too easy to figure out when two expressions for surreal numbers are actually equal.

comment What can be tiled by T-tetrominoes?
The paper "Tiling rectangles with T-tetrominoes" by Korn and Pak seems to present some progress for non-rectangular simply-connected regions, mainly Theorem 11 in section 8. It doesn't seem like they have a complete answer though. citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.70.6847
