Brecht can answer that maybe, I haven't looked at SSS GPU code yet.

This is on our todo list I think? "Ambient occlusion color node" which 
is in the ToDo list.

You can find some infos here: 
http://lists.blender.org/pipermail/bf-cycles/2013-July/001534.html I 
don't think we will see it soon though.
> - Texture baking
Not a real priority, if I remember the plans correct. Meaning that we'd 
like to finish bigger features (Displacement, Volume...) first.
Also on a personal note, I don't know of any path tracer that supports 
texture baking. Whether it is Arnold, Indigo... I always here the 
argument that we need Texture Baking for Game Engine users, but Cycles 
is meant for animations and film, not for Game Engines.
