One of the things I feed Sharepoint is missing out is to have cababilities to nately generate documents from a List Item. OK, stuff can get exported into Excel. Often I get asked why a list item cannot be seen as an Infopath or Word form or even as a XPS-PDF-OneNote document. I hope it will get added somehow,  eventually.

"One attendee asked whether the Outlook Web Access (OWA) administration tool would ever be integrated with SharePoint Server. Saad disclosed that Microsoft intends to merge the two.

"We want to make it so that you only have a single place to go to get all the Web information," she said. "Our long-term goal is having a single point of access for everything on the Web." Much of OWA would become Web parts, she added."

Is the next version of Sharepoint + SQL Server 2008 going to be the real WinFS?

you get transactional (SQL Server 2008) file storage with FILESTREAM + transactional NTFS with Windows 2008 + metadata and search with Sharepoint

One of the issues arising lately at my customers is how to protect sensitive information published on Sharepoint. IRM is the answer altough it doesn't cover 100% of customers' requirements. IMHO, IRM could be better marketed as "document pimp protector" than generic DRM.
