comment Is [舐]{な}める a stative verb?
So basically we're back at the beginning that it depends upon how we define it exactly and for what purpose (eg. 金田一 was concerned with aspects and 〜ている). I think simply saying "a verb expressing a state" might be too vague to be applied to unclear or edge cases. If you say もう彼を舐めるな feels more like "Don't underestimate(stative) him anymore." I might say I feel it's like "What you shouldn't be doing, is not taking him seriously(dynamic) any longer.". But perhaps it's worth to look at 工藤真由美's classification: 状態動詞, 主体動作動詞, 主体変化動詞, 主体動作・客体変化動詞, 可能動詞, 存在動詞

@Joe 工藤(1995) classifies 思う as 内的状態動詞. 吉永(1977) and 金田一(1950) classify those verbs as 継続動詞 (進行解釈; 憎む、悩む、焦る、苦しむ、悲しむ etc.) and 瞬間動詞 (結果解釈; 諦める、驚く、喜ぶ、呆れる、飽きる etc.) and both 瞬間動詞 and 継続動詞 are 動作動詞. So no, based upon the classification I'm referring to 思う is not considered a 状態動詞. As for 見なす, 見なしている is possible, but not as in 見なしつつある or 見なしている最中, so I'd say under 金田一 it would be a punctual verb (瞬間動詞), which are used in the plain form to express a current action.

It's also worth pointing out that on the term base aggregates frequency lists by Pomax, which is based upon light novels (小説), たがる occurs 591 times, and たい 76201 times. These novels usually feature interactions between characters on a rather familiar level to each other.

You could commit to the Japanese culture proposal on area51 if you like this question. It might be on-topic there.

See also here books.google.de/books?id=l-C4H2sBJlEC&pg=PA69 (状態動詞:テイル形がない and see at the top of 69 as well) We need to be careful whether this is an argument about the definition of stative verb. There are more stative verbs than いる and ある, but the definition/categorization by 金田一 might be more narrow than what you might have in mind.

@Joe Yes, most verbs can be used in the plain form. But think about a situation currently taking place: Would somebody say お前、俺をなめてるだろう or お前、俺をなめるだろう ? With stative verbs, it sounds fine if yousay 今いる? or 水、要る? or 賞賛に値する or それ、出来る? or 走れる? (not 走れている?)

Well, this is my take. Perhaps somebody has got more insights on linguistics.stackexchange.com ?

@Joe How would もう遊ばない, もう(Xと[は])話さない, もう笑わない, もう届かない feel to you? These are usually not classified as stative, but personally, I can't see much of a difference (?)

That's an interesting sentence. At least as far as 知る is concerned, it seems to me that the plain/dictionary form is a lot more common when used attributively, ie. 俺の知る波島出海ちゃん but 俺は波島出海ちゃんを知っている

@"Yang Muye" As far I understand it (see links above), there's also a difference if one thinks about actions/states currently happening. You can't say うちの子は公園で遊ぶ (dynamic), but you can say 子供たちは公園にいる (static).
