        Lovely puzzle, as usual. In particular, I loved your heteronyms (8A

        ) and that deletion in 4a is masterful. Nice misdirects of indicator words as well in 17A

        , and I don't know which camp you're in, but I'd certainly count 16D

        as an &lit.

          Thanks Aaron! Heteronyms are my favorite words to clue, haha. I have a pretty hard line on &lits - "tracking technology" in 16D

          serves no real wordplay use, so I'd call this a quasi-&lit at best, which I think are best left unannounced!
