Here's a question that has been bugging me:  Is there any place one
can find these classes, beyond the dozen or so that come with Latex
and a few published by math/CS journals?

I've tried to use Latex/Lyx and this is something that ends up driving
me nuts.  I realize that you're supposed to focus on content and let
it do the formatting, but sometimes I just don't like the formatting.
I realize that there is probably some study that shows that 3" margins
are better on the eye, but if I wanted to do that I'd just buy A5
paper and save a forest.

It is clear that the "right" way to do Latex is to just use a
different document class, but it seems like there are about 15 of them
on the planet, or nobody is sharing.  How is it that xmms can have 387
different skins, but we can't format a document more than a dozen
