1/ Correct, and it is slightly extended in RFC 1951. I do  not have any real
problem with the name, just sounded odd to me.

2/ What I meant with inconsistency is 

  <starttls xmlns='urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-tls'/>
  <compression xmlns='http://jabber.org/features/compress'>

Where the opening tag and the closing tags are different. From what you
said, I suppose the closing tag must be </compression> then.

I'm OK with the rest.

Isn't Zip a TM?  ZLIB is a compression algorithm defined in RFC 1950,
so it should be fine to use.

The compression -> compress -> compressed modulation is exactly what I
intended.  This was to make each state in the transition explicit,
with no possible ambiguity.
