I didn't loook at your list but I did notice something else:

Remember, AOS is something YOU are sending in. Your husband/wife isn't sending in a petition like the K-1 petition. I don't think you need to have 2 signatures.

And I don't believe Petitioner and Beneficiary are correct terms to use anymore.

I didn't include one. My application went through ok, with timely NOAs.

I suspect they don't even look at the cover letters. They already know whats being sent to the lockbox.

I would say cover letters are an optional formality, but not a necessity.

A short two-paragraph cover letter will suffice. No one at USCIS has time to read all this....they simply go straight to the required forms and other documents and digitize them.
