I'd add to this list

* lightfields integrating well with other shaders.

For example,  I know that the random vegetation doesn't work with
lightfield shaders, and the fix that Emilian put together to allow the
random buildings to work was a workaround rather than a full fix.  I
think this is probably something you and I will need to work on
together to fix.
