Second this - support for 6LoWPAN specifically.

The feature set of that chip already is rather awesome. But many of those features are either hard to use or simply broken.
So please do us the favor and invest into bugfixing/stabilizing/enhancing the ESP IDF and a new silicon revision instead.

Also, the code examples misses their mark - instead of showing how to use the APIs, including limitations and quirks etc., they show an implementation of a hardware interface for some specific hardware, thereby forcing the reader to sort out what parts of the code actually concerns the API and what parts that are only related to the specific hardware. The example for the RMT is a prime example of this imho. (I've not read through all the examples, so this may be biased, but it is my perception of things).

Unfortunately they have already replied that they will not include 802.15.4 hardware.
For the new low-power / low-speed mesh IoT networks WiFi-ah / 802.11ah would be the only option, as long as they include 900Mhz (Sub-GHz) RF hardware.
900Mhz has great advantages in IoT low consumption networks, is a frequency much more efficient than 2.4Ghz.

It can even be an off chip addition that can be done as a module that one can buy in bulk from a single supplier. I have done deployments for such and the ESP32 is a real contender if this was taken up. The advantage is actually obtaining this from a single supplier.
2. The ability to get the WROOM32 with a uFL connector that one can add an eternal antenna in the case where one is using a product case.
