This was really surprising to me partly because I expected the idle control valve to be responsible for the shoddy idling and also the car has just under 63,000 miles on it; A little low for the intake boot to be falling apart don't you think?

The intake boot failure is not mileage dependent, it's time based, since the rubber dries out over time. If there was a silicon dressing applied to the hoses, it might prolong the life of these parts, but otherwise, it's just a sign of old age.
