comment ImagePadding or other means of getting whitespace when the PlotLabel is a Column or Grid
Can solution 1 be used without specifying the size of the Pane?

Yes, I want to use PlotLabel for single panel plots like this one, but in the case of a multi panel graph as in that other question, I have to do it differently.

@mr.wizard i can't test EMF export until I'm back at work on Monday and near a Windows machine. Dragging the boundaries doesn't really scale to my application, where I want other users to be able to plot things with minimal fiddling.

Ironically this is how I do it for multi panel graphs. See mathematica.stackexchange.com/a/7695/8

comment ImagePadding or other means of getting whitespace when the PlotLabel is a Column or Grid
Related but not duplicate. Neither ImageMargins nor ImagePadding put white space above the title in a way that prevents cropping in EMF export, and the line spacing issue is weird. Because I have a custom function to make the title and I use it in both PlotLabel and as a separate grid element, I want some consistency.

I tried ImageMargins but the text is still cropped, even though there is whitespace.

comment Selecting elements from a list one by one
This gives the correct output but there is no need to map the function part by part. Addition works element-by-element on lists (vectors, matrices, tensors).

comment Selecting elements from a list one by one
Where you are getting confused is with the idea that you need to do this "one by one". Mathematica does not need to do element-by-element arithmetic on lists "one by one" as if looping over the list. See this question for some useful parts of the Mathematica language that are more efficient and faster to write than the procedural way you are thinking about it now.
