Expansion modules would be very nice--drop it in and it works.  900, 2.3/2.4 GHz, maybe even higher bands.

RS232 is still extremely important for interfacing with older computers, accessories, or homebrew gadgets.  I can't think of a simpler way to do it.  Maybe put it on something other than a DE-9 connector though.
