You can also add an extra asset to the hedging portfolio, and obtain a complete model thereby.

comment Need for Binomial Representation Theorem
The martingale representation theorem has some conditions (as you implicitly note with the word continuous) but it is indeed a more general result and in mathematical finance the binomial calculations are indeed mainly motivations to intuition.

comment What causes the call and put volatility surface to differ?
You can throw it into the objective function, but typically the errors are within the bid-offer spread. When they are not, that generally implies that you should be using a better borrow rate, which can be calibrated either as part of the overall vol surface fit, or in a separate pre-calibration stage that only looks at parity. Also worth noting is that, usually one calibrates (almost) exclusively to the out-of-the-money options.

comment Deriving credit spreads or migration matrices from prob of default

comment How to derive the implied probability distribution from B-S volatilities?
In derivatives pricing the term "model-free" is shorthand for "does not arise from any particular SDE".
