I find all home videos so bad, I would not bother putting video on a DSLR. This is usually due to the bad sound quality (how many people use decent separate microphones), normal users do not have a steady-cam and the subjects usually don't know what to do and just wave at the camera. If you want to produce a naff video, you might as well purchase a purpose made video camera or a compact camera.

I think you're mistaken in what can be produced with DSLR video. I've seen some amazing stuff and made some of my own which I am quite proud of as well.

In terms of what I would launch...

I would replace the new 60D asap with a cut down version of 7D (same sized body but with no video, single processor, slower FPS and less weather sealing). The white balance processing (all settings) also needs to be significantly improved.

Are you kidding me? No video? That's a must have in any DSLR these days. Why do you want slower fps and less weather sealing? It's not like these features shine in the first place. The only thing they need to do to the 60D is improve the AF, add lens AF adjust, and maybe a magnesium body and bigger viewfinder. White Balance issues are ongoing and probably won't be solved anytime soon.

A good quality EF-S 100-400 IS USM is needed (the new 100-300 L lens is way too expensive for many users).

The 70-300 IS would function fine for many EF-S users. And we already have a 55-250 IS. 100-400 just sounds extreme for EF-S, there's no precedent for this lens. Although good one on Nikon for their 55-300mm VR.

Add HDR support to DPP. This would just make the workflow much easier and quicker.
