I disagree with number 7. FWD is just more predictable. AWD only helps when starting from a stop. If you're used to oversteer than you should feel no less confident in a RWD. Steer in the direction of the skid - not the way the car is facing.
That having been said, drive safe, drive smart. Speed is relatively irrelevant when considering inclimate weather. Before you think that is a stupid statement - it's not speed, but the change in speed and direction that kills you. Going from 0-20 in 0.5 seconds is more dangerous than 60-70 in 5.0 seconds. Remember that. No sudden changes in energy. Keep it smooth and constant, and you should be safe at any speed.
That being said, take the longest line, the most forgiving curve, and try not to use the brake. This will keep you alive.
And from personal experience, Pirelli Pzero Nero M&S's throughout the middle of their lifespan are a bad idea on non-salted roads. Just FYI.
These are all very good tips (especially about the radiator bits) - keep 'em coming!
