That sounds like a pretty good lineup of what i'd expect for the next  
major version jump.
Except the PHP4 support being droped, I think we all know that the hosts  
arnt likely to upgrade to PHP5 accross the board.
Instead, maybe just bump the current required PHP to 4.3 (given 4.4 is  
out), That'll add a few extra options to developers, and also means that  
hosts can stay with PHP4 if they want, they just need to keep it updated.
(BTW, requirements for WP state PHP 4.2, Wordpress code checks to see if  
its 4.1)
