Also, I'm tempted to ream the seat from 27.0 to 27.2--is that possible and acceptable w/ thin 'super-steel'?

I'd think twice before doing that to any frame, thrice before doing it to a superlight frame like yours. Baylis, Sachs, et al may be in the best position to make this call though. In any case, aren't NOS posts cheap in the 27.0 size, relative to the prices for 27.2? Why not just buy a nice new post and keep your frame at factory specs?
