I don't understand your first point.  What do you mean by "Browse" option? I 
can't possibly think you mean that the file browsing dialog only shows 2 of n 
notebooks in some given directory.

Yes, it is the case that notebooks with Saveable->False should be able to save, 
and don't in 8.0.1.  But that won't affect stylesheets created using the method 
I outlined.  And that bug will be fixed in a Mathematica incremental update
which will hopefully be available soon.
