The X-E2 is going to have an advantage in most of your areas of interest because it has the same processor as the X-T1--twice as fast as the X-E1.

Operating speed

X-E2 -faster

Single AF speed

X-E2 - faster, same speed as the X-T1

AF accuracy

Mostly the same

EVF

X-E2 was just upgraded with the same EVF fast refresh rate and color manual focus peaking as the X-T1.

EVF lag

X-E2 -- less lag, same as X-T1

"Automatic focus on the closest eye" feature (if it even exists)

Not available in the X-E1 or X-E2

From your answers, it looks like the X-E2 is pretty much on par with the XT1 when it comes to operating responsiveness and AF?

In this case, I might well wait until its price drops down to something similar to the X-E1 today.

Thanks for the comparison.

No. The E2 is not on on a par with the T1 when it comes to AF... At least in the area of predictive, continuous AF in burst mode.

And speed is the primary thing distinguishing the E2 EVF from the E1. Their size and resolution are the same.
