> What can the government do with seized BTC? They don't serve any purpose as evidence, obviously (since all the transaction info is public record). Can they be auctioned off? Sold?

Government seized real and tangible personal property is regularly either used by government or auctioned off, so I don't see why bitcoins would be any different.
