This is what I needed often, too. 
But this really is merely ONE of the areas Drupal could be deployed. 
My (now on hold) project called DrupalCOM was meant for exactly (yes EXACTLY) 
these 11 items. Well, not really, I had 12: 
* allow english and dutch on one site. (ie super easy i18n)

So, please let us not forget that this is just one possible area for Drupal. 
That this should ideally be dealt with in a distro, not in core drupal. 
Unless we move from the all-purpose Drupal to a CorporateCMS!
