It looks like a pretty good list of ideas worth thinking about as and
when someone has time :-). I'm not sure what feedback you're looking
for beyond that? Do you have a purpose in mind for this list?

The main thing I'd add is: making it possible for ufunc core loops to
access the dtype object. This is the main blocker on a *lot* of
things, probably more so than anything else on that list, because it
would allow ufunc operations to be defined for parametrized dtypes
like the S and U dtypes, categorical data, etc.
