comment Is it true that only movement verbs can take [V-stem]に to express a purpose?
@Pacerier those are just to help form a mental image of what に feels like.

comment Does it make sense to say [v]ませんでしたら instead of [v]なかったら?
What I learned about たら construction is that usually something follows after たら, and that can be in a polite form. Putting too many polite constructions together would result in a "politeness overload" (i'm not sure enough of this to post as an answer though).

@Ignacio yes, and also about the apparent lack of difference when と is not used in the comparison of (1) and (2).
