(1) Developer Mode On to allow you debug remotely. So you can use Flash Builder IDE, or command line tool to "communicat" with device to debug.
(2) It say that, but I am use it much more than 10 days, never expire. I think it may be just a security feature to force
you change password disable debug mode, but at least, on simulator for now, it never expire.

I believe the 10-day thing is intended to automatically disable developer mode if it's left on for 10 days, rather than requiring a password change.
I'd be surprised if many people had left their simulators running continuously for 10 days, though if anyone has and needed to re-enable dev mode they haven't reported it here. I've certainly never needed to, but I think I've always had to restart the sim (or just wanted to) well before 10 days.

Once we get the actual PB device and it is connected to your computer via a USB cable, you will probably still want development mode for transfering and debugging apps. I agree that it is a security feature that will probably disable after 10 days so you're not walking around with device wide open.
