How important is it to have ammo that is crimped and sealed in a military/SHTF environment? Is bullet setback in a non-cannelured/crimped bullet a significant hazard or more of a white elephant? Finally, how will non-sealed ammo stand up to high humidity, not necessarily submersion, just typical summer moisture and such?

I have seen bullet setback in a buddy's SP-1 AR. If it has happened to me, there were no consequences. In general, crimping of combat ammo is probably a good idea. I doubt if just humidity would ruin non-sealed ammo. I've never bother to seal hunting ammo and it has never been a problem. Immersion in water would be a different question though. JMHO.

I think primer crimp is important also.
