When it looks "good" one has to wonder *why* they just don't go ahead and make it part of the original body design?!? (I know: $-$-$-$).

That molding-insert in rear-bumper facia really helps to make the rear end look cleaner and less bloated than it is.

Both very true statements, CUDA. I agree, that RS rear bumper can look large, especially for a small car, but that lower insert does look good while helping to disguise and break up that quite a bit. I do really like the overall appearance and stance the RS package adds to the car.

Sadly, we bought our LTZ before the RS-package was made available.

I know the RS package was introduced at the 2010 New York Int'l Auto Show, so late first quarter/early second quarter, but when was it made available?

...the factory had a short period where apparently some RS component wasn't fitting, so RS production was temporarily halted:

We got our LTZ in Nov'10.

RS package production started the week of November 5, 2010, after more than a three week delay, with a delivery around mid December. The problem was with the side skirts not staying attached to the car. The skirts were reworked and put back into production. I give GM kudos for getting it right, it's a nice looking package.

Is the RS package available where you are, or in any of the European market for that matter?
