On this topic, but not for this ticket: I'd like to have an
'experimental' ruleset in svn, where all newly implemented features in
the code are put to use! If a feature is not visibile in any ruleset,
it will be forgotten just like bombardment.

Nothing that goes into 'experimental' need to be balanced, fully
implemented, or even completely stable. It'll be a testbed for those
not weak of heart. =)
