2) will suck some of the inertia out of the Moon, so the fact that it is slipping away from the Earth [1 inch per year] can be slowed or halted.

the only time we dont use the moon is if we are putting a satellite into orbit, or sending nutters to the moon. we have only ever sent sonething outside our sphere of influence a couple of times.

1 inch every year is nothing to worry about. Every century the moon goes 8.3 feet further from us...so what, thats 83.3 every thousand years...83.3 feet is virtually nothing when you look at the bigger picture. The moon is 239,000 miles from the earth, which is 1,261,920,000 feet, So with it moving away from us a little over 83 feet every millenium.....Like I said, dont worry about it.
or perhaps a visualization wil help.
