Actually, I really like this idea.  It could go like:

Feature				Lead			Status	
Improved Memory Use		Jan Wieck		Complete, Committed for 7.5
HA M-S Replication		Jan Wieck		Alpha testing
PITR					Simon Riggs	Early Development
Tablespaces			Gavin Sherry	Late Development
Integrated pg_autovacuum	Matthew O'Con.	Planning
Server Clustering		None			Developer Needed
etc.

As well as giving the press something to look at, this would give programmers 
and corporate sponsors an idea of where their time/money would be of use.  
And it could put to bed the myth that we're not constantly improving.
