I'm not entirely clear on what exactly "establishing knowledge" is compared to introducing a fact, or why you would want to roll if you succeed automatically.
Immanent Solar Glory rewards you based on the results of your dice roll. What that line means is, if you want to introduce the fact that a particular village's folk tales are distantly based on actual events from First Age history, and the Storyteller says "nah, you don't need to roll that, I think your character can just know it" (or alternatively, "nah, you don't need to roll that, that's awesome and it's what I'm gonna do"), you can still say, "hey, I still wanna roll for my Immanent Solar Glory."
Also, Bottomless Wellspring Approach says you get an auto-success and other successes you generate are doubled. Are other successes from, say, Harmonious Academic Methodology or spending WP doubled? Or is it only successes you generate in the dice roll?
Bottomless Wellspring Approach only doubles your extra
successes, i.e. the successes you roll over the difficulty you're going up against. There isn't any innate utility to that; I think it's an editing artifact.
