If they are supposed to be universal settings then these options should be in the System backoffice section.
If they are supposed to be collection specific settings, then it's also a bug ;)

Grrrr, where is the preview button!?

These are settings that are common to/shared by all collections. In the case of cross posting it makes really sense that it's a shared setting.

Regarding URLs, yes it's one of the many problems with cross-posting... which seemed like a good idea a long time ago but isn't really that useful...

What resembles most to what you describe is to use a content block and to reference it in 2 different posts.

In that case though, comments won't be shared.
