#12 is in 0.41 btw, check it.
#14 - the idea was to remove lights completely, but if you want to remove them making black then just make zero intensity. When we have the light lister it will be much easier.
#8 - it will probably be our own resource collector for cntlTexture and cntlProxies. Right now 3ds max doesn't even see resources from not-own shaders (even from the other renderers). But it is possible to edit paths to CentiLeo resources in Max asset tracker.
Working on the other things (all of them). Eg, UVW mapping need a lot of more investigation.
We will do all of that and deformation motion blur is the first out of your list.
As for denoiser then we will first optimize existing unbiased solution. There is a very good resource to make it much faster. And when most of our list in this area will be done then we will work on denoiser which is an interesting opportunity too.
As for skin shader - have you seen that we have 3 multiple-scatter SSS layers? With weight, color and radius for each layer. However, SSS not yet fully optimized, but the chances are good here.
