comment BibLaTex modification of verbose-ibid
PS: keep in mind that the closest style to what you want may not be verbose, but authortitle. Your modification would then be the other way round: »always use authortitle, unless \citeseen, in which case give a full citation«. This might be easier to do, and it's the route I took with the style I posted below. Look at the different style examples: ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/biblatex/doc/examples

comment BibLaTex modification of verbose-ibid
yes, it's certainly possible to take the closest style to what you want, and then modify from there. The crucial command is going to be \ifciteseen, which lets you specify actions to be taken depending on if the work has been cited already or not. However: the desired result, as you describe it, is inconsistent and reader-confusing. Why isn't footnote 2 an ›ibid‹ as well? The short citation in your footnote 2 should be reserved for instances, where, in the meantime other works have been cited.

comment Indexing with Biblatex: including editors as well
there's a major problem with this approach, though: a subsidiary editor will an get index entry every time the corresponding work is cited, even if their name doesn't appear on that page explicitly. A simple short citation is enough to trigger an index entry. In the example above, Robert Hicks will get index entries pointing not only to the pages where his name appears (e.g. in the bibliography), but also to every page that has a short »Aristotle (1907)« citation. Needless to say this is going be misleading to readers.

> Did you in fact answer your own question there? ...@moewe: not entirely. The problem that remains is that I think those subsidiary editors deserve a mention as well (book written by ..., edited by ...). Will try your suggestion.

comment Biblatex, citing with endnotes, ibid tracker gets thrown off
Thanks @clemens, will give that a try. @moewe: luckily, ibidtracker=true is a good option in my case, as I've stopped using in-text citations in all documents where I'm control over what citation scheme gets used. So there's only one level on which citations appear.
