That Pennsylvania requirement's not obscure at all, really, at least if "obscure" means people will be unaware of it. They always post signage on your way in to the work zone telling you to put your lights on. (They sometimes forget the "End Work Zone" that permits you to turn them of...or else I miss it.) It can be so annoying, though. I remember one drive across the state on the Turnpike passing through a bunch of work zones... turning the lights on for a few miles then off, then on again a few minutes later. Yes, I could have just left them on, but I have the sort of dashboard where if you put the headlights on in daytime that dims the dashboard display so you can't read the clock and so on.

In Estonia, yes but I don't know about other countries.

You can also fit aftermarket DRLs to older vehicles if you want as long as the lights meet EU requirements and are properly placed in the front of the vehicle. So this, for example, is perfectly legal:
