Many things are listed as theme controlled.  Does this imply that themes 
may have additional configuration screens as well?  In particular, the 
first thing I do is disable the live preview as I find it distracting... 
  But theme controlled seems to imply that either themes will have 
configuration (which I truly doubt) or that quite a few configuration 
options will be decided by the theme author and not be changed...

I'm not sure I understand what this means...  I have the always display 
set to true.  Does this mean that if I am watching a show, and then turn 
on captions, it stays on all of the time for all future recordings until 
I turn it off again?  This would work just fine, but I am just making 
sure we understand these couple of settings.
