I've made some modifications, and left out a few that may be best to
keep (particle features mostly). Also added more explanation to the
second list.

I don't mind making edge rendering a node, it's pretty simple, and can
then be more easily improved.

Old Track is already gone, Slow Parent is on the list, and also added
Curve Animation now.

They should work like operators or render engines now, appear just
like native textures or sequencer effects. Not a plugin texture type
where you have to load a .dll/.so file each time.

Forgot about this, perhaps we can keep it only visible the game engine
and remove the functionality from the animation system.

Agreed, already removed it in the render branch, added to the list.
