Additionally, washing a car after it has been waxed and polished reduces the clear coat’s lifespan.

Doesn't polishing, as it removes material, shorten the lifespan of any coating, clear coat or otherwise?  

What kind of polishing exists that can remove contaminates __without__ removing the coating (clay?  a gentle formulation?).

I've seen a few references to  Opti-coat products, For example W-Wash.  What is the difference from the products on Optimum site vs Opti-coat products?  Both seem to have the same products with a few exceptions.  Why two sites?

The Opti-Coat line has 2 purposes - the products are formulated for superior performance on ceramic coatings and it provides private label products for Pro Installers (unlike Optimum products, Opti-Coat is available only directly from Optimum or authorized pro detailers).  While both Optimum and Opti-Coat products will work on all surfaces, Opti-Coat works better on ceramics.
