"Confirm password" field - Superfluous?

I have a design for a new user registration form in which I am proposing to
not use a "Confirm password" field and would like your feedback on this
decision.
The form will have 4 fields, all of which are required:

1: User name (This will be supplied to the user prior to their using this
form)
2: Password
3: Hint question
4: Hint answer

The form also has some explanatory text that describes the use of the hint
question and answer which is that the pair of fields will be used when the
user forgets their password.

Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

HiOscar the insurance company is one example with some innovative qualities and certainly worth a study. But I'm searching for more advanced forms with higher complexity.

Examples of Good Customer Support Sites

When users can't find the help they need contextually and land on a
customer support site, how can we create a good experience for them?

I've been looking at:

Adobe
http://www.adobe.com/support/

Apple
http://www.apple.com/support/

Amazon
http://tinyurl.com/2wwact

Does anyone have examples of effective customer/technical support
sites?

I'm interested in best practices on surfacing relevant help
topics/tools to users so they can self-serve with ease.

Thanks!

ID vs email address

The email address as user id is becoming the preferred way in my
opinion.

Pros:
an email address is unique;
an email address is easy to remember;
in many cases the system requires the email address also for sending
messages.

Cons:
still not everyone has an email address;
an email address may change over time.

Did you consider OpenID?

Creating a UI Spec Document Template

Right now our small team is communicating UI changes and enhancements
with developers using PowerPoint mock ups with notes. I am concerned
this will eventually backfire and would like to bring a little more
formality to the process. Is anyone willing to share their UI spec
document and/or recommendations for putting together a spec. I have
used the PayPal format before but it has been a while and I don't
remember everything that was in it.

Since our team is very small I don't want to bring about a lot of
paperwork just something to make sure we have all of our bases
covered.

Thanks,
Jamie
