Default What Are Your Wishes For the Zune in 2007?

Since we've just started 2007, I thought it might be interesting to see what the community was hoping for from the Zune team at Microsoft in 2007. Realistic, do-able features that can be added to our current Zunes via a software update. What would you like to see? Here's my 2007 wish-list, and I think all of them are realistic:
  • Read Embedded Album Art
  • Fully-supported "Zune as Hard Drive" mode
  • WiFi sync back to PC (this would take a lot of work, but it's important to have)
  • On-device codec support for DivX, Xvid, MPEG4, Flash/FLA (transcoding is a bad solution, I want real support for these file formats, even if it costs the Zune team money)
  • WiFi sharing of videos
  • DVR-MS support for getting Media Center TV shows
  • Resize photos to 240 x 320, not 480 x 640
  • View portrait photos in portrait orientation
  • Update the Zune Marketplace to show which songs are not able to be shared
  • Expand the Zune Marketplace - I'm tired of going to look for bands and songs and not finding them
  • Extending the 3 day/3 play DRM to be 30 day/3 play
What are some of your 2007 wishes for the Zune? And what do you think of my wishes - am I delusional in hoping for this much?
