Request: Community Features?

Is WPMUDEV interested in building a stronger community here?

I ask because there are a few things I'd like to see which I think could help promote a community and community involvement including:

+ Messaging (PM - Private Messaging)
+ Friends List
+ Quarterly Member recognition voted by users. So lets say I wanted to nominate Shawn or WPCDN (non staff members) they could be placed in a hall of fame for that quarter for helping the community grow. No prizes or anything, just thanks and recognition. Its like an employee of the month but quarterly and for community members to help promote their involvement.

I'm sure there are a few other things people here would like to see?
