In content creation:

# Required field indication doesn't obviously indicate its meaning.
# "Submit page" isn't the best title, "Create page" or "Create new page"
might be better options.

These two have been noted in quite a few usability reviews (including
the one I wrote up).  The first one is such a trivial change.  How many
'experts' saying 'this could be improved' does it take until a patch
gets committed.
