I am hoping he's playing that up. It's is a strategy after all - no one is threatened by him, everyone seems to like him (except Na'Onka, of course)... It's possible.

I think he realizes that the power of the HII is vastly overrated, if everyone knows you have it. In fact, it can be a serious liability. He's probably thinking it will drive a wedge between the younger players.

And with Marty gone, so goes my interest in the rest of the game. I admit that I think Sash and Brenda made the right choice. It will be easier to get rid of Jane when the time comes than it would have been for Marty. I was really rooting for Marty to win immunity, because it would have made things very interesting, in addition to keeping him around for three more days.

Is there some reason non-idol holding survivors wouldn't do what it takes to force the idol holder to either use the idol (or, even better, vote the person out without the idol being played)?

It's not worth doing unless someone has two idols.

Why give someone a free pass to the final 4?

Because that person will get zero votes from the jury. It's the fundamental flaw that keeps Survivor from being a better show.

Or they win, like Yul did, and like NaOnka may do. She's already got at least one vote.
