My guess is that this is fine if you trust the source or don't mind defaulting. If it's in a block 1/unconfirmed it's 'mine' so it's good to go right? What about 0/unconfirmed, can I still send without problems?

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Yes, you send around 0/unconfirmed coins forever from what I've found out in my testing. The only issue is, should those be fake, everyone that the fake coin was sent will have their balance adjusted to subtract the fake coin.

If it's someone you trust (best friend, family, good business partner) then yeah, spend it.

If it's someone you've never done business with, I would wait before spending just in case.
