A roadmap to 3.0 and beyond is a great idea. We definitely have some ambitious projects underway, and I think it'd be wise to pace ourselves and plan ahead so we're not creating too much disruption in a single release cycle. As each project lands in trunk it's going to create shock waves for the other projects that haven't yet, causing rework and possibly delays. And while I think we'd agree that MAPI is the most important feature on the table right now (from a business perspective, at least), I fear the Bonobo removal will likely cause the most severe shock waves for everyone. That's why I'm eager to finish this quickly (but responsibly) instead of dragging it out and causing greater disruption for the more interesting and user-visible features you mentioned above.
