... and Microsoft's secure government Azure offering in Australia. Just because you can doesn't necessarily mean you should :)

I've seen long file paths cause issues with Macs syncing Google Drive too, nowhere near any Microsoft products. The large Exchange mailboxes issue IS painful and shouldn't be an issue still in 2017, I agree. As for SharePoint, it's more a risk for people moving file share documents into SharePoint Online, because of how a file system stores and reads metadata vs how SharePoint does (onprem or Online). Nasty little gotchas for sure.
Great to see you are doing it right and have the experience. Absolutely agree that there are answers to all of this and these are exactly the kinds of things an IT expert will be prepared for and will overcome. For our no-IT managers and owners, hopefully it's enough to convince them it's not always a walk in the park and they should get an expert.
So much this. The metadata is contained in the file for a reason, NOT in the title. The challenge is that some migration methods treat the upload as a new file (as it is a new file created in the Cloud system) and you can lose your historical metadata if you're not careful. That's more important to some people than others.
