    - Add other live wallpaper that didn't come stock
    - Use root only programs available in the Android store (including wireless tethering, SetCPU, and others)
    - Side load programs not available in the Android store
    - Remove stock applications that you have no need for (potentially helps save RAM and CPU power)

    I know you can do at least those things right now.

    Remove/freeze factory apps - Titanium Backups
    Underclock to save battery power - setcpu
    Clean the cache files - cache cleaner
    Free WiFi tether

    Remove bloatware and wifi tether!
    I'd like RockPlayer to use HDMI out vs. stock app, but don't know how to do that.

    No. Honestly... spend 2 minutes looking around and you can find this out.

    Easy now, some people don't know how to research things themselves ;)

    If you feel like living life on the edge and you know what you are doing (potentially risky without recovery), you can modify framework files, change colors, fonts, etc... :D

    I think wireless tether and perhaps underclocking the CPU when not needed would be the best reasons to root..

    I really hope we can find a way to run custom ROMS.. all I really want is vanilla Android.

    *Opinion*
    Dear Moto: If you're reading this (you clearly aren't), please just give us vanilla Android... the majority of us would prefer it over your MotoBlur crap. It saves you time/money, and makes most end-users happier.

    Note: I know it's not "technically" running MotoBlur... but it might as well be. Same, ugly, unintuitive interface.
