"...Your dealer, as of ~'01, can set a C-best option that disables the defrost/defog/demist link that activates the A/C..."
Good to know. Too bad it is something has to be done by the dealer. I had a 02 Civic and I could do that myself by pressing some buttons in specific sequence, but I have no luck to find similar hack with my 2005 Pontiac Vibe and my new Camry. Also my Vibe compressor seems quite noisy compared to other cars. http://a332.g.akamai.net/f/332/936/12h/www.edmunds.com/media/townhall/webxicons/- emotorcons/emo_blush.gif

shifting to neutral during coastdown in the hybrid models will result in additional brake use. brakes will need replacement much sooner.

Unless we're talking "hyper-miling" in which coastdown distances are planned. In any case the Prius brake pad seem to last so long that a little additional wear might not really matter.

Provided the extended distance coastdown is well planned, well thought out, yes.
