You may want to observe if the "sinking pedal" goes along with how the AC compressor cycles. Sometimes when the AC compressor shuts off (disengages) you will have a feeling of a softer brake pedal simply because the brake booster will have a higher level of available vacuum (hence more brake assist/softer pedal).

I always have my AC on low, so I don't know, but I did notice when I'm in neutral and waiting for traffic or the light my tach drops to idle for a while, when normally it'll stay around 1050 or so...

That's what mine does. Service manager tells me that it's the brake system bleeding off pressure. I've never had a car bleed pressure from the brake pedal before and I tell him that. He asked me to start the car, put it in Neutral and press hard on the brake. It starts sinking slowly towards the carpet like usual. It gets about to the same height as the clutch pedal when it's depressed fully. I release, he has me do it again. No change. Then he tells me to shut off the engine. Then I press on the brakes and they stay there. No sinking at all. He told me that if the master cylinder leaked, the pedal would get soft when the car's not running. The brakes work fine in traffic. I'm not at all concerned about how they act when I need them...but I've never had a car with a brake pedal that does that.

what you just described is totally different from what is being investigated and it isnt even an investigation for your model year so i have no idea what you are talking about, but it sounds like you have air in your brake lines from that whole "press and wait then stop hard" part of your post.
