1. For Point(1), I was also of the same opinion. Thanks for the link.
2. For Point(2), I got your point. In this case, can he get Entry Clearance (Tier1 dependent) from India, in Feb2014 get FLR and in Feb2015, can he go directly to citizenship if wife becomes a BC?
Will getting EC from India break his continous stay in the UK for being partner of a BC?
