comment Understanding evaluation and typesetting
I think that the answer to question 2 is that evaluation means something specific here. In the entire process of producing formatted/rendered output from an expression in an evaluated cell, it makes sense to call the initial handling of the expression by the kernel the "evaluation" phase. Afterwards, things get converted to boxes and then get rendered. I think the fact that in the step of "conversion to boxes" expressions with head MakeBoxes are also evaluated, leads to confusion.

comment Inconsistency of WriteString
@george2079 I did not want to delete it, because I think it might be good to have some warning against the strange behaviour of changing the context of a symbol. And possibly this is not the cause, because really a "kernel function" like WriteString is unlikely to depend on this.

comment Handling Kernel quit
@Mr.Wizard sorry, it was a pretty random observation. I think I was just a bit shocked that the technique in your answer is possible and I was trying to make sense of it. You can delete these comments if you want.
