Problem with mountainhome is that without additional challenges (i.e. vjek's custom challenge embark for Pseudo), the caravan upgrading the settlement through the tiers is the most limiting factor, rather than population, cash or crafts done.
Is it possible to skip tiers?

No idea. Could embark with 150 dwarves and find out perhaps?

Was able to jump from baron to duke, skipping count, but not sure if you can skip the city tiers

A tantrum spiral run would last forever given tantrum spirals haven't been a thing for years now.

I haven't got a tantrum spiral yet, but I have had a dwarf throwing a tantrum. If I had the task to make any dwarf throw a tantrum asap, I don't really know how I would achieve it. I am correcting the line to just "First Tantrum".

The closest I've come to a tantrum spiral in recent years is in an extremely savage reanimating / husking fog evil biome in which I went through a number of cycles of losing and reclaiming the surface to the undead, causing huge numbers of fortress dwarves to encounter undead and husked close relatives in combat on a regular basis.  There were several violent tantrums involving a core of four or five dwarves, which showed some level of spread throughout the community, but never actually devolved into a total chaos tantrum spiral.

How about a series of ultimately arbitrary but appropriate challenges, such as Mountainhome + created wealth + population + total dead + siege broken + noble set on fire + etc etc?
