This is high on the list.

- translation of function names as is xl an OOo-calc (this has already
been discussed).

As soon as we branch we're going to implement the long awaited
function doc separation that would give us the hooks necessary to
implement this.
And much less often:
- scripting.
This is also high priority.  On par with pivots.

- 3D graphics.
To my mind there are two types of 3d.
- surface plots : These would potentially be useful
- 3d bar/col/pie ... : I really can not see the allure.  If someone
  wants to write this we would review the patch, but it's not on the
  list of things that seem important.

May be it is not so useful but it might be easier to implement than
surfaces (even if it is possible to use code I wrote for contour plots),
so once we have 3D axis, may be I'll try some thing with 3D columns.

- curve fitting in graphs.
This would definitely be nice, along with several other extensions
to the charting engine.

I have already some code, but not usable yet. I have some ideas about that and I'll detail when I'll have a 
patch to submit.


We tend to keep our working notes in
Although it currently focuses on 1.4.1

To your list I'd add
    - RTL text/layout (This is partly done already)
    - persistence for external references
    - the libgoffice split

However, I'd also like to note that we're considering moving to
6 month release cycles.

This is very short IMHO. If we really want a new minor version twice a
year, we should fork soon.
