Give every content type the option of a lead image
The web is a visual medium, and as integrators, we are very often asked to make plone sites "prettier" by adding more images. We used to write extenders to add images to various content types. Now collective.contentleadimage is available, albeit still in need of improvement. How about incorporating into core the ability to optionally add an image and caption to every content type, and facultatively display that image in different contexts?
While we’re not going to incorporate collective.contentleadimage into the core, it’s a great add-on product, and if you need this functionality, you should use it!
A future release of Plone will include the Deco page layout editing system, which will provide a vastly more flexible way of adding images and creating layouts.

I think this would be a great PLIP for Plone 4.1 if there is somebody willing to work on it.
