some brief thoughts:
ad 1: within my P5-world I would probably encode the enclosed letter
as some sort of div. Then I would record the (meta information about
the) correspondence separately and point to the xmlided div. The
background is that imho the enclosed letter is a second "act of
correspondence" yet to come.Therefore we at the Carl-Maria-von-Weber-
Gesamtausgabe do distinguish between meta information about
correspondence and the actual text (there are a lot of cases where we
just know of a e.g. letter but don't have any bit of the text).
ad 2: that's a good one as it demonstrates the shortcomes of the
current definitions of opener and closer within P5. I would not want
to encode these openers (or closers) as <stage> because even if the
text is imperative it is in its formal structure a letter.
Best regards and hope that helps
