It would be cool, for example, to make edit pages modular and abstracted, so Plugins could readily make custom edit pages for Post Types by adding in edit sections -- almost like widgets.  For Post Type X I need the Text box, Parent, Categories, and nothing else.  Boom. Done.

That sounds like an extremely good plan.  

What's more, I'd really like to see the artificial distinction between Posts and Pages minimized, i.e. Currently Posts can have tags and categories, but not Pages while Pages can be part of a menu but not Posts. etc.  It would be nice to have each of these features decoupled and allowed to be assigned in the admin.  The default configure would be to have Posts and Pages the way they are now but if I wanted to add tagging to Pages then it would be great if I could just add it.
