+100 on that. Translation handling in stock page module is a huge PITA. 
So improvements in the direction of TemplaVoila was/is handling it would 
be a warm welcome - especially for editors.

As a long term TYPO3 dev and integrator (in the boat since 3.5 IIRC), 
here would be my suggestions:

- I agree with Claus Due and share his vision, like
   * make TypoScript as optional as possible and stick
     with well known standards where possible
   * get rid of CSC (make it optional for backwards compat)
     and move over to pure FLUID rendering by default
- to attract more integrators and increase popularity,
   provide "themes" and an easy way to install them
   (even though I absolutely hate themes personally)
- make default FE templates/rendering responsive
   (and maybe even use a wide spread framework like bootstrap)
- clean up TER - way to much outdated bloat there IMO
- pretty pretty please a new backend that works with mobile devices
- webservice support out of the box
   * pick up the concept/vision Helmut Hummel showed at some devcon
   * optimized bootstrap, missing interfaces/hooks/caches in core
   * transport protocols (REST/SOAP) + data converters
     (extbase -> JSON/XML) as standalone extensions
   * easy way for extensions to hook in and add new features
- some more, but work is calling again ;)

kind regards,
Franz Koch
