                • all modules with consistent option to exclude their css file

                  IMHO it is a overkill for page speed when every single module has its own link in the head section. It is good to have a default delivered with a module for end users. But for website builders there should be a consistent way within every module to switch of the link to the module's css file, because website builders will override the modules css anyway.

                  • an Extension manager that displays the name of what was just installed

                    for most installs, this would be redundant, but for those that require multiple installs, such as GCalendar, it would help, especially when you're interrupted before finishing

                          • QuickBooks

                            It would be nice, if there was a QuickBooks interface built for Joomla. The interface would transfer data to/fro QuickBooks such as time sheets, bills, invoices, payments for bills and invoices, customers, vendors, etc.

                            This interface will simply write data into MySQL tables. From there, we can build custom pages on how we want to use that data. The data must have flags on it so when the data is changed, the Joomla QuickBooks interface will know to transfer the data back to QuickBooks company file.

                            • Take a glance at the Website Template Deployer (WTD)

                              Between the developer and the customer( or website owner), someone became the Website Template Deployer (WTD). They do not develop or design something , but help others who want to own a website( website owner). Maybe we should meke further segment to this our CMS roles.

                                  • WCGA 2.0 Priority 2 Accessibility Compliance

                                    As recent laws have started making companies liable for not adhering to WCGA 2.0 Priority 2 Accessibility Compliance it is my recommendation that this be addressed.

                                    As of Version 1.5 WCGA 1.0 Priority 2 was supposed to be implemented but there have been no further statements beyond this article. http://www.joomla.org/accessibility-statement.html

                                    This is very important for municipal and federal Governments especially. It would be good to include if we hope to bring Joomla to the front of the rat race.
