Here's one I'd really love to see: the ability to use the same Overlay templates that work in Live Production mode--in Edit mode.

We've spent time crafting custom templates for our live switching sessions, but it would sure be a help to be able to use those same templates on the Edit timeline. I know I can use the graphical element of my template and then layer CG text on top of it, but that's slow and imprecise.

This is a particular issue on a project with a lot of lower-thirds or full-screen overlays, where the ability to simply change the text using the template approach would be a huge help.
