Keyser
Speaking of TBM's collectively, I can't think of any.
Certainly individuals determine there are areas of their lives where they just aren't going to allow the church to go, or "rules" that they justify as mere guidelines, etc., but I really can't think of any area of life where the church has not asserted some rule or another.

Well done on the list! I do have to say that all the talks on 'gathering to Zion' did tell Mormons to gather to certain locations. Now the counsel is to gather into groups of Mormons and 'enlarge the Stakes of Zion', so most TBMs follow this command by moving into areas with as many Mormons as possible. So, Where to live, check

They'll let you choose the color of the tie you wear with your long-sleeved white shirt, if you're a dude. They'll let you choose the color of your ankle-length skirt, if you're a woman.
