The moth rules are 'open', so that if it's not banned, then it's allowed. So you could put a jib on a moth ( as long as total sail area is >8 sq m.

The 'new IC' is intended to increase downwind speed and get therefore apparent wind sailing /big gybing angles- so taking the jib off and bigger main should help.

Most 'pointing' boats point cos that's their fastest vmg upwind, because the hull shape / rig etc etc are such that there is little speed increase for footing off.
eg laser points high, but makes lots of leeway.

A cat, or moth ( esp a foiling moth ) has low pointing angle, but the boat speed is very high - so are much better vmg upwind.

Depends on the class entirely, jibs may limit pointing but they keep the flow over the main - in the 14 in anything above a three or four we are planing upwind thus we bear off by about 3-5degrees this is quicker than someone trying to point - to plane or not to plane

The Voodoo skiff looks like a really nice boat, but looks like she has been heavily influenced by the 49er. Don't really fancy the way the deck curves, could cause a few nasty moments . Is there any info on what sort of sail area she will be carrying or the construction of the rig?

Looks v.nice. A bit like a very expensive Musto Skiff. Got any contact details for the builder?
