On a related note, if there is a choice of methods (e.g. sendfile
vs. memory), could the web server just try them both on successive
requests and in the future (on that resource), pick the faster?
There would have to be adjustment for hotness of the caches, but
you get the idea.

That would relieve people of tuning their system manually.
I really have no idea how big a "big" file is, and I'm sure the
answer changes from OS/arch to another -- and even on one
OS/arch will vary with available RAM.
