FD mount adapter

Impossible with EF mount. The registration distance is 2mm longer than FD. You'd have to put glass in it (i.e. make it a TC), and to make it really useful add a motor to play with the aperture. Canon has no reason to do this -- they won't gain customers because of this, and they could lose lens sales to those gullible enough to go for an FD mount adapter.

1.4x Teleconverter with Nikon/Minolta interface.

I don't know about Minolta, but Nikon and Pentax can be done without any glass. If you got fancy, you could stick an ASIC in the adapter and make the Nikon/Minolta/Pentax lens and EOS body talk to each other.
