I think the unified connector should come from the industry world, and not from regulators,

so that industry can still innovate as long as the manufacturers agree on a standard.
Yes, they have. It's called USB C and is endorsed by everyone but apple (btw, some of their iPads and Macbooks start to use it as they actually know the lightning one is lightning in name only and USB C is many times faster)

Lightning might be technically superior, but that is probably not so relevant for some people being forced to have two chargers at home and keep distinguishing between them.
No, it's not. It's actually inferior in every single aspect, but brings home a gross margin of probably 99% on each cable sold + royalties for accessories
