I wonder how best to group these things together so that people 
don't forget about them after a release - often you see comments 
"next release cycle, we will audit X" (sometimes it's even "this 
release cycle").

Among things I have seen that fit into this category is
performance. It would be really cool if every maintainer made
performance a headline, measurable goal for 2.12 (reduce total
memory footprint of GNOME by 10%, improve startup speed by 10%?) 

I don't know what decent metrics might be, but they should be
measurable and attainable goals.
