All of these issues are new features.

Current CMF1.3 contains many bugs and showstoppers that has been fixed in HEAD 
for months. I use HEAD snapshots in all my installs.

My suggestion is to create a release branch for CMF1.4 NOW. Release an alpha, 
fix any bugs that people might find, then release the final version.

CMF1.3 was released ages ago, there is a huge need for a new release with the 
features and fixes currently in HEAD. New features can then be added to HEAD, 
and released in 1.5

If we start adding features now, we won't have a release for many months now
