Well, we can start populating the wish list
Base ISO 800 with shutter speeds of 1/64000? I'll take it

But my point remains. When is the last time we have seen a truly innovative new thing in photography since the digital sensor came along? True, there has been constant improvement (which, don't get me wrong, was/is truly needed; I couldn't do many of the things I do with a D1). But instead of getting a camera with ISO 128.000, I'd prefer if Nikon/Canon/others put their effort into coming up with something that would redefine the technology of photography

In simplistic terms, if Nikon has 10 engineers, I would want only one of them working on getting a camera with one stop better ISO, not 8 of them. Right now, it feels as if from the 10 people, 6 work on the ISO, 3 on the MP, and one of them (in some dark corner probably) tries to come up with new things...
