comment Alternative Numerical Representation of Pitch
I don't know if this will help you, but have you heard of pitch set theory? It's good for abstracting relationships between a series of pitches, but does not assign absolute numbers. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Set_theory_(music)

comment Ic-V-I perfect cadence progression SATB part writing rules
I agree- I think motion by unison and motion by octave are usually considered equivalent, although the octave motion is very characteristic. I was taught harmony with a strong suggestion to use the falling octave in this situation.

comment Does “extremely slow” mean also “extremely difficult”?
I think with Messiaen you have to subdivide to the point that it becomes natural and you can get to the point where you can play the rhythms without subdividing.
