Well, this is not exactly a top-10 list because some of them have
sub-cases, but hopefully you can get something out of this list.  I
tried to order this with the most important first.

1) (by far) Single window interface, a.k.a. MDI.
   Note that there are two cases (Window-in-window MDI and Tabbed MDI)
   that are probably mutually exclusive.  Each option has its advantages
   and drawbacks, and each has its supporters who usually reject the
   other proposal:
   1a) http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7379
   1b) http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121087

2) Adjustment layers

3) Layer trees or layer groups

4) Avoid popup dialogs for tools, file plug-ins, etc.

5) Organize brushes, palettes, gradients... in categories
   ...and make it possible to delete or hide the default ones

6) Save for web

7) Better printing support
   (colors, one image on multiple pages, multiple images per page, ...)

8) Improvements to the text tool
   8a) Support for multiple styles (font, size, color, ...)
   8b) Applying transformations on text
   8c) Text along path
   8d) Adjustable letter spacing

9) Painting with "natural brushes" / simulate natural media

I probably forgot some, but I suppose that you will get several
lists so you can have fun merging them.  Note that I did not list
several frequently requested features that have only a minor
impact on the user interface, such as support for 16-bit colors
(as you mentioned), support for spot colors, better color profiles,
better metadata support, etc.
