Oh, and in addition to my other points, maybe we could allow some non-unicode text? Even on certain boards? I'd love to be able to post in Chinese or Japanese without it coming out as %u4EC0%u4E48%u4EC0%u4E48%u4EC0%u4E48! Of course the foreign language rules that are already in place would apply.

If for nothing else but the spoiler tags. Those not only would help everyone accidentally reading spoilers, but they would clean the boards up a lot. The use of spoiler tags expands beyond their name, they always make it easier to organize information in a post, or have uses for forum games. --- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v207/Inch/sig.jpg *rimshot*
4: Do Want - I like this idea, and think you should work on it
Spoiler-tags have been necessary for awhile now, and GameFOX has made me become a fan of quoting easily in a way that looks fine. I'd encourage looking to that extension (though I know you're familiar with the basic idea of quoting anyway). --- This sig-space should be replaced by any number of GameFOX-sigs I made to support Epona from LoZ:OoT to make the next Character Battle.
Everything else is great (but handled in GameFOX already) but Spoiler Tags are a must. It's pretty annoying scrolling through a topic and still managing to catch spoilers by skimming + setting aside that much text for a spoiler is pretty disruptive.
