16oc spans, 5/8 or 3/4 plywood/osb, storage of "stuff" i.e. dead loads.

I like t&g so I know I'm not going to overload an edge accidentally, or if the
next owner wants to use it for live loads and won't curse me like I'm cursing
the PO for using 1/2" and 3/8"). But not enough to buy a router and set up a
table to route all these boards :-)

The blocking ideas would work but there's insulation in the way.

Sounds like butt edges will be good enough!
