In general, I'd like to know if there's anything absolutely preventing this frame from being restored and turned into a high-end bike again.

Then, this concerns me -- any thoughts?

This is a lesser concern. And while I have no clue why anybody would go through the trouble of cutting the seat post like that, I should be able to get the stuck piece out.

saw two lines straight down the gap where the stuck post is, that'll free it up! assuming you are respraying once it has been sand blasted you'll have a clearer idea of corrosion etc. getting the correct shock in good condition will be the biggest challenge
