Just curious, how do you run a ten foot pipe in the middle of a two by four?

I agree there should be metal plates protecting the pipe; however how do you know he did not put them in. He may not have, but it is impossible to tell from the picture.

No, as stated earlier it is a sloppy job so it does not "look all right" but IMHO there is no reason to believe it will fail.

Yes, the mixing valve should be supported.
