I'm involved in the Crystal Space project and the blend2cs converter. 
Recently we've been thinking how an optimal solution for designing CS maps 
would look like in blender:

-It should be possible for plugins to integrate own opengl views into 
 blender. This would give the possibility to have a realtime CS view while 
 editing the models. This would need some c++ plugin API I think...
-It should also be possible to extend blender UI with scripts. It should 
 be possible to extend/replace or add new windows to blender. At least 
 adding new buttons to the button window would be really usefull. Then we 
 could easily write python plugins for handling all the CS specific 
 properties of a model.
