I'm curious- are there any other differences between Google stock and AOSP other than Google stock removing the AOSP Browser/MMS/Music/Dialer apps? I'm mostly asking about lower level stuff, as on the outside they look perfectly alike.

Yep and this regularly is the case it seems.
Unlike other oems who will update their proprietary frameworks / base without an Android version update, Google only seem to release at the major milestones... 4.4.1, 4.4.2

I moved to aosp to get a fix which I had been waiting on stock for too long on.

So where as its true that the Nexus gets its updates first (numbered versions) it's potentially the opposite way round for small fixes.

It was pre 4.4.2 to fix a bug where only one floating window could show at a time.
