The BrakeLite specs say that it works for 4, 8 or 16 ohms.
Could it be used for a 2 ohm load (Fender Super Reverb)?
My Weber Mass has a selector switch for 2, 4, 8, or 16 ohms, but the BrakeLite doesn't have anything like that. Doesn't that mean it must have an impedance mismatch at some of those impedances? Is it designed for a specific impedance but just tolerates differences within a range?
yes, the BrakeLite always leads to a certain impedance mismatch. In a certain range this is OK. The amp MUST tolerate the mismatch and not the BrakeLite (here you have to make sure that its power rating is not exceeded). So for 4,8,16 ohms, at least Dr.Z amps tolerate the impedance mismatch caused by the Brakelite. At 2 Ohms I believe that the Brakelite will not reduce the power enough...Impedance mismatch should not be a problem.

GuitarZ: Argghh! ETA for power is Sunday midnight. Thank you for giving us all a place to vent. At least we have a generator and our house suffered zero damage from the storms.
