Only thing I would add to your wish list is an upgrade to the 800mm or possibly an 800/600 DO

Yes, a 600 DO does sound good.

Or how about upgrading the 400 f5.6 ? I'm sure many would welcome that.

I think the 400 5.6 is already perfect optically. IS could be welcome. But when they added IS to the 300 f/4 L the image quality became downright AWFUL because of the addition of the IS optical elements. When i say " awful" i mean in comparison to the 300 f/4L non IS

IS is not the first thing I would like to see in an update. it makes the lens heavier and more vulnerable, and now it seems that image quality can get worse.

For me, weather sealing is very important. A 400 mm lens is used by sports and wildlife photographers and will be hit by dust, sand, water, salt spray etc.
