comment Is there a limit to hook priority?
The "bonus" is a bad idea, in case the definition for $wp_filter ever changes. It is not meant to be used directly by plugins. We have made modifications in the past (primarily for performance reasons, incidentally).

comment Enqueue Google Web Fonts Without Messing Up Symbols In URL
I spoke about both in my answer, and comment. You were worried about both in your original question.

comment Enqueue Google Web Fonts Without Messing Up Symbols In URL
Correct. I edited my answer slightly to make it a bit more clear. In this case, the ampersand is an escaped HTML entity, not URL encoded. It should not be encoded (which would be %38) because it is being used in its special URL role. URL encoding a reserved or unsafe character like |, :, or spaces are separate, and also encouraged.

This is a very clever solution, but would it not be better to steer a user toward the knowledge they need to realize their problem is not a problem, rather than the code that does what they think they need, but don't?

The "other possibility" won't work. You can't quote a table name. Prepare should only be used for values.
