+1 for all non-controversial suggestions.

    *  3D view lock to object
***ok by me***

    * All edges option for meshes
***ok by me***

    * Animateable object layers
***ok by me, could we animate restricted flag instead???***

    * Blend Sky (no horizon/zenith, just one color)
***ok by me***

    * Bounds draw types for objects
***used this before for meshes which are not that visible, dont think
its a problem to keep, but not fussed either***

    * Cubic interpolation material option
***no opinion***

    * Curves in the image editor: replace by exposure slider.

    * Dupliframes
***ok by me. users will cry though, would consider some alternative,
dupli along curve for instance***

    * Environment Map texture
***ok by me***

    * Fresnel diffuse shader
***ok by me***

    * Grid mesh primitive
***dont see need to remove, can be useful at times but also not fussed***

    * Invert Z Depth material option.
***ok by me***

    * Irregular Shadow Buffer
***ok by me***

    * Particle grid emission distribution
    * Particle Instance Modifier
    * Particle jittered Particle/Face option and Jittering amount options.
    * Particle Line/Path/Billboard rendering
***no opinion***

    * Particle "Parent" option for rendering offset.
***ok by me***

    * Sequencer Glow effect
***ok by me***

    * Shadow Render Pass
***ok by me***
