One feature I think would be really cool in LW is constraints.

It's like taking dynamic parenting one stage further.
Motionbuilder has some great constraints, like rigid-body, where a number of items can be used ot constrain the motion of another.
On top of this, the constraint weight can be keyframed, so it can be controlled over the course of an animation. Adding a 'damping' feature (envelopable) to control how smooth the flow is would also be useful.
MB really has some excellent constraint tools and it would boost LW a great deal to have something similar.

Whilst currently, you can do some things with expressions and sliders, it is not so straight forward to set up.

Maybe someone in the dev dept. should have a peek at MB.
