Wallets are catching up. It makes no sense to break them now. This will be
fixed in time.

> Remove OP_RETURN anti-replay rule

It already has a sunset clause.

> Better difficulty adjustment

Pool software do that already today. It is not useful.

> Dynamic blocksize

Yes, this is important.

> Schnorr signatures

All Cash client can do pruning today.

> Removing Asicboost (Least priority?)

Nobody cares about ASICboost.

> Forcing XThin / Compact Blocks

This is not really consensus related.
