Generally you need to look to bug tracker and see what items are there. 
If I plan to make a new feature, I always put it there. If you see 
"assigned" (blue color) entry, it means it has most chances to get in. 
If it is unassigned (red), I (may be) looked at it but either do not 
know yet how to solve it or do not plan to do it. "Acknowledged" 
(yellow) items are those, which are on hold - i.e. they definitely will 
not be fixed in ant nearest future.

DS, as is, does not define any visual structure. TO defines it. 
Therefore all layouts should go to TO, not DS. But this is my current

I have idea to integrate me_templavoilalayout (because it was asked) but 
I will have a look to rmd_tv_decorator too. The status of this feature 
request is "assigned".
