I also feel that this feature used to work when it first showed up in OmniFocus for iPhone.

I am having the exact same issue with copy/paste on OmniFocus for iPhone, and also reported it to OmniGroup. Hopefully, this is something they will get a chance to fix soon.

Noticed any problem with large files? Does OmniFocus re-sync the whole database?

Have you notice any particular problem leaving those large files attached, or are you removing them to be "on the safe side"?

Running of storage space, even on a mobile device, isn't something I'm worried about. I have about 500 MB to 1 GB of new reference material per year. This will most likely go up year after year, but...

Action blocking next actions until done

With OmniFocus, we can define projects as sequencial or parallel. By default, I define my projects as parallel. But from time to time, I have a project with an action which really needs to be done...

Steve,

I don't use a "delegate" context, but rather ask myself the question "what is my next task for this delegated project?" Often it will be to check back with the person, so:
