I think tc_receiver PP-MP0209 was meant to be 309. PP-MP0209 is a servo gear. @sarahv can you update that?

If we make the left standoffs 2mm longer we could accommodate the regular sized shoulder screw for the idler that is closest to the motor pulley (the idler in the picture without a screw). Also I think the custom standoffs are more than just not being able to find the correct lengths, the smaller OD also allows for a clear belt path

In addition to the printer knowing which toolhead it has after a power cycle, this is a stretch but the printer could also detect if there was a failed dock ie. if the magnet on the dock doesnt pull the toolhead close enough on the dock, the printer could try again until a successful dock, or move the toolchanger to the side of the partially docked toolhead and push it in

west added a comment to T10137: No Part Number Currently 100k Semitec NTC Thermistor 235mm with Micro-fit 3.0 Pin Terminations.

I'm not sure what you're asking. The thermistor EL-TH0012 is supposed to have the old style termination. It gets plugged into a thermistor harness that acts as an adaptor from the old style terminations to the microfit 3.0 (look at AS-CB0066 for an example of the thermisotr harness)
We get the thermistor from E3d with that termination style. This was to make it one part number across all toolheads
