Q. What would be _the_ single _most useful_ dynamic or interactive capability that might be added to Mathematica? A. The ability to sort an already completed and displayed table on any column, simply by clicking on the top of that column, as one can do on the columns of Finder windows in List view in the Mac. Refinement: Ability to toggle the associated sort order for that column (sorting the entire table, of course) by repeatedly clicking at the top of that column. Alternative: An option ("InteractiveSort->False/True") that could be added to the Table (or TableForm) command that would implement this capability for a given table with no further programming. [Apologies if this or something equivalent to it exists and I've missed it; I did make a quick scan through the lists of new features and the Interactive/Manipulate descriptions on the Wolfram web pages.]
