Systainer based cord real, basically so when you are switching tools, moving the vac, or go from tool to clean up mode the cord gets retracted back in.  I'm finding the cord to be a pain during switching around. And with the cyclone on top, there isn't a good place to toss the cord.  If it could fit under the cyclone with a jumper to the vac and then you pull the cord out as you need to work.

And maybe have another outlet for plugging in a battery charger.

A handsaw that cuts the exact width as a ts55. I had to finish some angled plunge cuts into a corner and the thin blade on my pull saw likes to go off on it's own course. Bonus points if it cuts on the pull stroke and fits in the systainer. limited edition is fine.

What if you shimmed the thickness of a pull saw with some magnetic sheet. You could place it on either side depending on which side of the saw kerf you needed to follow. Haven't tried it myself I just thought of it while reading your post. You can get magnetic sheet material in fairly large sizes, I don't know if the thickness would make up the entire difference between the TS saw blade and your pull saw but it might be worth a look.
