"3). Giles ditching Buffy (and Dawn) after Buffy is brought back when Buffy is barely hanging on. True, Buffy needs to learn to stand on her own, but was now really the time for tough love? And what about Dawn."

Yes. Buffy had to grow up. She had a sister to take care of. If Giles had remained, she would have done her level best to depend upon him and he IS NOT HER FATHER OR HER GUARDIAN. He was her Watcher by her consent only. And as she proved by the end of Season 5, she didn't need a Watcher any longer. To be honest, if Buffy had taken the time to study about the supernatural and learned more than just the "Hand" aspect of slaying, she would not have needed a Watcher by the end of Season 1.
