Well this is my experience: I have at times left my DVD/BD/DVR on pause for upwards of 45 minutes (sometimes while coming here to read/post) and never once seen any trace of IR or Burn In. However, when viewing my close friend's plasma a DVD Menu or DVR on pause for even 15 seconds shows clear IR, although he hasn't had any permanent burn in on his current TV (he did on a previous gen plasma).

I really want to get one of these TVs, but there's so little information about them out there that I can't find answers to any of these questions! If someone could help, it would be greatly appreciated!
I'd suggest you find a store that has the unit on display with a isolated feed to it. I went to a local Circuit City and it had it on a split feed and I couldn't tell much of any difference between it and a Samsung 65 and 71 series. There were literally 15-25+ TVs all on the same feed. They all looked horrible with macroblocking and artifacts, and because they were far apart I couldn't really compare black levels.
I just came from another C.C. further away and it was hooked up to a Sony blu-ray player and the thing looked incredibly good. Black levels were great for the environment as well as colors and all that. But this gives you an opportunity to change settings and see what impact, if any, it has on the picture. I didn't have time to play with it a lot, but if it's important to you I suggest trying to find a similar setup.
