OK, there seemes to be no major opposition to this, being done now.

I'm not doing this, not yet at least. If I can figure out a way to
test whether 256-colour mode works currently, and it doesn't, I will
drop it though...

I am doing this, too.

I am not sure about this yet. It should be self-evident that a
production build of Pango should use Uniscribe. But maybe it is a good
idea to continue letting people who want to debug or developer Pango
on Win32, and can't be bothered to download the Platform SDK, build it
without Uniscribe, though.
