3. DQ reversal due to improper score entry is probably rare. I have never heard of it actually happening to anybody who was DQ'ed.
Several years back in Louisiana the 4.5 team got some scores changed after sectionals, from their State Tournament, which allowed the their top singles player to play Nationals and go 5-0 and win Nationals. So not unheard of.
