In terms of the Rules, no. Powers do what they do and cannot be voluntarily lowered, as there are no rules anywhere that allow it. Torturing an undead creature would be most likely be a Skill Challenge, but the ability to channel Divine Power would (for me, at least) definately be worth a +2 circumstance bonus on all checks and primary skills would include ...

The creature would be stuck in it's burrow and suffocation rules would be in effect if necessary. There is no specific rider for burrowing in the unconscious block and no specific effect from unconscious under either burrowing or tunneling.

(RC 316) There is no restriction on the keywords associated with the character, if they have a ...

There's no such thing as "partially using" a power. That said, all damage in 4e can explicitly be non-lethal, at the attacker's discretion. From the PHB pg. 295: When you reduce a creature to 0 hit points or fewer, you can choose to knock it unconscious rather than kill it. Until it regains hit points, the creature is unconscious but not dying. Any ...

An indirect answer: If your players want to be overpowered, they will be. If you fight them on it, it will lead only to a war that will make no one happy. More directly: Item optimization is among the more engaging aspects of character building in 4e, and a fair number of really, really flavorful, interesting character builds only work with very specific ...
