Awesome, I was pretty close then. I made these 2 small changes and this produces the results I expected.

You can do that in InfoPath with rules

comment Remove InfoPath Validation Red Dashed border
Anytime. Our designers love to not have any values preselected for forms, so as a result, I have to make all the fields optional and then use rules on the buttons to enforce completeness. If you can get away with default values for your choice fields, then you don't need to mark them as required and don't get the red dashed borders.

comment Workflows in 2013 and 2010 can not change a library column with IRM enabled
You are doing Check out item, update field, check in item in the workflow correct? You can also try putting that in an impersonation step.

comment Unable to trigger workflow
Not use a system account to post the data to the web service, use a service account that isn't the system account or use the current users credentials.

Is it inserting the information using a system account? If so, the workflow will not trigger.

comment CAML Query based on IDs to get version number?
I was using the BIWUG CAMLDesigner to generate that markup. It could be used in a SPServices jQuery function to fetch data, edited with example usage.

comment SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser
I'm not in a position to dive into it fully atm. Console log out thisUsersValues and see what it returns, I thought it was an array, he might be returning an object.

Have you tried using rules and validation on your form fields to make sure information is correct before allowing them to submit the form?

comment Best way to implement “.exists”-type functionality to prevent duplicates?
I've used the list based service a few times to get the item count because it does that for you straight away with the $count option instead of having to the look for it in the XML and parse it out.

comment Remember user selection and redirect
That could work too, the implementation is up to what you feel most comfortable with.

comment Remember user selection and redirect
If you want to do server side code, sure. It can be all done with jQuery/JavaScript and the web services, SOAP or Rest. The implementation can be whatever you're most comfortable with, but making it list based allows you to easily enforce acknowledgement when the policy changes by just deleting the list content.

comment SP 2013 and IE 11
Thanks for answering your first question here on sp.se! Can you edit your post to include more information? Perhaps with information stating that this is fixed in the service pack with a link verifying that information rather than flat out saying install the SP with no further information.

I'm glad you found the solution, link only answers are typically frowned upon. I've taken the liberty to copy the pertinent part of the related blog post into your answer so it doesn't get lost.
