Nice list.  I have a few additional thoughts:

- server initiated timeout for pointer grabs (automatic timeout
on closed or dead socket as well);  prevent a common cause
of X server hangs.

- an abstraction that covers things with functionality like OpenGL
display lists, suitable for use in making bandwidth efficient

- some apps/libraries that allow graphical installation of X itself
on most common platforms and make it easy for developers
to extend easily this to other hardware - based on auto-detection
and use of lowest common denominator functionality.

- some apps/libraries that simplify for naive users the process of 
automatically enabling ssh-based initialization and local display of 
X apps on non-local hosts.

- develop a comprehensive conformance and performance test suite for 
drivers and publish the results to show status of current drivers and allow
consumers to make informed choices.

- software support for pseduo-color visuals on top of displays running
true color.
