My thoughts (many of which are not original... just condensing):
* Specificity of fewer than 5 minutes might be overkill
* Create wp-cron.php?key=[uniquemd5] so power users with real cron
can set it to wget that file so that pseudo cron is never fired on a
* Hooks for arbitrary time increments would be cool.
"every_X_minutes" ... "every_X_hours" ... "every_X_days"
* WordPress would use it to
# publish "future" posts
# do periodic (weekly?) cleanup operations like:
+ Recalculate category/comment/post counts that may be off because
of plugins not using the API
+ Perform misc checks for problems, and notify the admin
# clean out old "spam" comments
# check for plugin/WP updates
# download Dashboard feeds
# send pings/trackbacks for future posts when they are published
