he's not criticizing your advice or the interviewer's eye toward the interviewee's hygiene/appearance
he's saying performing basic hygiene/appearance should be implied and a non-issue for the interviewee
I realize, but you use this phrase all so much Stone "people are stupid" (not saying you are simonsky) might seem like common sense how many people don't do it though.
I've interviewed people for positions 100s of times. The things I look for:
1. An ability to communicate
2. A lack of bull shit
3. Complete knowledge of your resume - with your experience that should be easy
4. Be a good person - people like to work with nice, friendly people - this goes a long way
5. Confidence without being cocky
6. Show initiative - you better have studied up on the job position and the company beforehand
Cleanliness matters in the workplace.

I agree with most of your list but I never care at all if they memorize some useless facts off our website, I typically give them an overview of the company and the company culture (which they can't find on a website) and see how it sits with them.

Depends on the org/interviewer I guess, but I think knowing about the company is key. I know in my case, the org I work for gets more than a million resumes a year-- and you better believe that if I were interviewing you, and you didn't show a damn good understanding of what it is we do/how we make money and how you in particular can be an asset to the org, that you wouldn't go very far.
