I partially agree that your top 10 list is different than mine. However I dont believe in the „ultimate truth“ that the Eclipse Foundation could supply.
I see the EF as an umbrella not really as the someone/something who wants too or should open feature bugs against a project or come up with a list of things that should be done. That would be pretty unusual.
And just assume they (the EF) would create just a list, its pretty demotivating to invest time and money in that, if there are no resources around who pick it up, dont you think ?
Maybe that makes a good topic for ECE 2013 for a BoF or something. I remember last year when John reported about the platform in a BoF at ECE 2012 and there were quite a number of people listening, but resources were a large topic. Any the plans that he talked about were rather small things since they are not many active platform committers.

I'm not sure about that. I have my personal bets on some of the top features, but I'm not sure what I have in mind is actually what would make the user ecosystem happier. That's why I would find quite interesting to have some "official" reports about this top 10 (or more) based on the actual state of IDE market/ecosystem.
It would help contributors to focus on the most important issues, and help companies to decide of where to focus their investment.
