Can vias short to components' bottom side?
Yeah, I've learnt my lesson there also for some Aluminum heat sinks on to220 components shorting to a top side gnd plane. I'd certainly avoid it. When you do mass production of...

Circuit Improvements for driving LEDs from 230VAC?
I would look at running a ST viper switching IC in buck configuration. Alternatively I'm sure Power Intergrations offer some solutions. oddbudman

relay project; how to power avr from 120V mains
Why not use a high voltage non-isolated buck converter? That way you will have good efficiency and enough current for even a power hungry relay coil.
