comment Make vimdiff display different lines as different lines (not partially different)
I interpreted the problem in a way that there should be a threshold for "similarity", so that 99%-differing lines should not be marked as changed, but 10%-differing still are. This is what your proposed solution doesn't achieve (and which indeed would require source code changes).

You can also just do :hi! link DiffChange DiffText. But isn't this solution just papering over the problem?

comment vi commandline, goto line and column
It matters for non-ASCII characters, which are represented by more than one byte. Also, a Tab and control characters usually occupy more than one display column.

comment vi commandline, goto line and column
cursor() uses byte index for the column, but it's usually a character count.

comment Vim mappings stop working
Have you changed terminals or previously used GVIM? Not all key combinations are handled in terminal Vim; <S-CR> and <C-CR> mostly don't work there.
