In the past I have always performed these steps in this order:

wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition
in advanced: wipe dalvik cache
in mounts and storage: format /system /data /cache /boot

vs

wipe data/factory reset
format /system
format /boot

Have I been duplicating processes that are accomplished with just these three steps? How important is the order of the steps?

Yes you have been. Cache and dalvik are wiped during the factory reset option. The order of these steps are important but what you've been doing so far is correct outside the duplicated steps.

No not by default. Its up to the developer of the ROM to clean what they think should be cleaned. However, many, including CyanogenMod do not. I actually believe its bad practice since this step doesn't need to be performed unless you are beta testing roms.

Yeah AllGamer moved it and said it was "common knowledge". All I can do is keep it in my signature.
