One thing I'm still not clear on..

can the octatrack sequence one-shot samples (or 1-shot chunks of a chopped up loop) or will it only play loops?

I think it's safe to assume that you will be able to do both. It'd be kind of ridiculous for elektron to make a $1500+ instrument and leave that sort of functionality out. It seems like they were really trying to pay attention to on the fly modulations with the crossfader style bank thing and that sort of thing wouldn't be quite as easy without the ability to sequence at least a few one shots.
