What I was planning to do was create a separate page for each feature 
which will provide more details. You'll start seeing some of these land 
today or tomorrow.

That would be very much appreciated! Taking a look at M4, there are some 
pretty significant additions to the Java editor that I'm sure we'll like 
to replicate.

Agreed. At the very least, we should improve the C support that we've 
degraded with 1.2. And I'm still dying for completion of C++ members. I'll 
have to check with Dave, the dev manager, to see how many resources he 
wants to put on it. But based on your commitment I'll move it to committed 
status.

Sure, If you could put a couple of sentences together describing it, feel 
free to put it in and send a patch. We should also consider adding you as 
a committer to the web site, no?
