Yes..screws, and sink plugs. The one you buy is always one size too small or big.

Unless the screw becomes loose, because it's useful to be able to replace it with a new screw with a thicker thread.

I think he meant standardising the thread...not the size (thickness) of the screw.

No.

Different screw threads exist for different applications.
