<i>Bottom line: if someone passes you on the right, you're in the
wrong lane.</i>

I would agree with this.

Exit ramps are usually designed with a "decel" lane in addition to the
"thru" lanes.  The length of the "decel" lane will  be based on the
design speed of the highway and that of the ramp.  Exemptions may be
required in cities where right-of-way is constricted.

I don't know the current policy, but there have been times when
tractor-trailers were being encourged to use the leftmost lane to get
more even wear of the pavement and extend the time between resurfacings.

With the lighter traffic in the rural West, I often use all lanes to
boost the "design speed" of the curves so my SUV doesn't roll over...
Saves gas by shortening the distance too!
