I don't know about 2 or 3, but the way 1 is supposed to eventually work is no email is ever sent. Instead, your email provider supports the API directly. For example, if gmail could be convinced to support this like they do OpenID, they would provide a url at https://gmail.com/.well-known/browserid which would return some JSON. The browser then creates an IFRAME and points it to a page at gmail.com where gmail.com can check the identity. The authentication using mozilla's servers is there for email providers which don't support this yet, but you can skip mozilla's servers and run the authentication on your own server (which as you say would involve sending email).
