    Stack sizes count for quite a few items. We had a discussion about that here. However, when you have a whole mumbo-jumbo of different stack sizes (example, hypnotic dust in your list), I find it more convenient to stack in multiples of useful stacks. So instead of going through the bother of stacking in stacks of "2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15", I'll just post in stacks of 2, 3 and 5.

    Also, I only tend to post in such small, tailored stacks when the item is expensive. When I'm selling some dust at 1g per dust and I have 500 of the suckers, I'm unloading them in stacks of 10 and 20. Small, tailored stacks are more usually for 50g apiece essences.

    Nice information though

    I went ahead and reduced the unique number of enchanting mats used to only the prime numbers within the set. I made a table of these for essences, dusts, large shards, small shards, and crystals. That information is available here: http://db.tt/9pEjzqS

    Another thing that I used to do, back when there were 20+ pages of up on my AH, was to use stack sizes to play the non-addon crowd. Stacks would usually get listed in singles or in multiples of 5, so I would post stacks of 4, 9, 14, and 19 for more per item, but since to total buyout was lower, mine would display first.

    Another thing that I learned was to find the most "useful" stack size, and then add one or two. (ie. lesser essences in stacks of 4, or crystallized elementals in stacks of 6, etc.) People will buy more than they need and either store or relist the extra, but you move more inventory in the process.
