My wish, which if it were to happen would be far in the future, is that a standard
Color Decision List (open source) be used between systems, such that a grading done on one system
on one particular day be reproducible on another system on another day.   Many things
conspire against this, however, not the least that it would reduce profit and incentives for same.  There is 
also the point that it might stifle innovation, though with Plug-in APIs there are ways to induce competition.
