Good to know your planets are so efficiently planned, Maur... One has nothing to bother with once he takes them over. ;)

As for roads, I get somewhat nervous if an engineer doesn't build city in the same turn he's been produced. Constructing roads seems so inefficient...

Houses without scepters are nothing because they can no longer take part in the main part of the game, the voting.
I leave planets as nothing if I don't need them. Usually I wipe another house out to take them out of my mind, one less house to bug me with the threat of war.

There is a trait where loyalty is increased when a noble is present in the palace. (Not sure if this one was broken) That is the only case where you'd need nobles in all your palaces. Though it never hurts to spread your nobles around a bit as you dont want all your eggs in one basket.
As for letting plague break out on a planet, I can imagine someone using plagued maurauders to return you the favor.

All this talk about letting plague erupt has made me think again about my city building. I now have adopted "plague barriers" where I let 5 hexes between some cities so I can seal off portions of my planet to the plague by razing a few key cities.

I build structures around the planet in clumps to protect from plague, only connected by road.
