Yes (but not very), yes (or the others), the versions are chosen by
people and people don't think alike. I think I prefer the plus variant
but I'm not fully sure why. Perhaps the -dfsg-1 might get confused
with a Debian version somewhere and perhaps the plus makes it more
clear that the version is modified.

The possibility exists of multiple non-free things being found over
time, this makes it clear that this is the first dfsg-ified tarball
for this upstream release. For later removals you can bump that
version to 2.
