I am mentally preparing for the Cosmo. I don't want to use Android on a phone for privacy reasons (using Debian on the Gemini, but that is not really an option for using the device as a phone), so Sailfish might be the best option. With this a few questions regarding Sailfish have arisen:

There might only be a community edition available initially. Is it possible upgrade to official without having to reflash?
Is it possible to update Sailfish without having to reflash?
What about X11 compatibility, is this possible somehow?
Hardware support (USB devices) and filesystem support is some kind restricted with the Android kernel. Has anyone tried the modular kernel with Sailfish?

Yes. See method 4.2 at this weblink: https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201836347
I just did this yesterday in order to update from 3.0.13 to 3.2. It went very easily and took about 45 minutes, I think. (I didn't time it, but it felt like less than an hour.)
