All of these are fairly obvious. There will naturally be tweaking and 
iterations of the implementation, but I think that these types of 
improvements can sometimes be done on trunk rather than in branches 
where they either would affect several other branches (e.g. a new widget 
that several new features may need) or where they are straightforward 
and/or easily reversible (e.g. a template change can be reverted without 
serious dependency breakage).

Let's see what does come in time for the deadline, but if some of these 
don't, I'd be +1 to seeing them done afterwards *provided* that the beta 
and RC deadlines are taken seriously!

Pragmatically speaking, as Limi points out, it's also a bit unfair to 
penalise these PLIPs when we haven't got the AJAX story sorted out yet. 
There is still too much uncertainty to start on any of these in earnest.

This is a kind of meta-PLIP. Yes, we need more control panel pages. :) 
Having people add them a bit later in the day should be fairly low-risk 
though. It's only slapping a nicer UI on features we already have!

Link type improvements would be nice to have, but needs a champion.

I believe Florian was onto this as well (getIcon improvements). Again, 
it's not terribly controversial.

If this is too invasive, it may be a bit risky and impact a lot of other 
PLIPs. If the changes are relatively minor or gradual, they may be OK. 
This sounds like branch work, though. :)

We need a champion for this, badly. It's an important feature, and I've 
seen a lot of users confused by the lack of editor/viewer local role 
management on the sharing page. It's also relatively straightforward, it 
just needs a person in charge. :-(
