Sure, it has just been days, and some countries don't even have the phone yet. Still, MS admitting that they ran out of time on a notification center, the fact that Skype replaces WLM only 2 weeks into a Windows 8 with baked in WLM support, makes me think that MS isn't afraid of change and will update aggressively if they can. This does mark a change from their 'slower' days, but it's a new MS, and probably they realized that a faster iteration cycle will benefit them. No point doing the perfect thing, Duke Nukem Forever was stuck in development **** and still sucked when it got out.
Personally, I hope for a notification center that is easy to access, native Skype support and the ability to create your own tile colour.
What about you?

More battery life!
Cell phones have been around for a long looong time, but the battery life seems to continue to decline.
My WM6.5 device lasts 4 to 5 days on a single charge with moderate use. Why does all other tech get better, but battery life gets worse when it comes to smartphones?
Bring us custom ring-tones and more volume/vibrate options!

I can't wait for Vargo!
It will give us everything we want and more. Now that it shares NT code, MS can shuffle more developers back and forth for large updates.
Whatever Apple or Google gets in the next 3 months to finally stay on par and better
Customer Hubs (all with their own "Start" screens filled with live tiles, not just another app list)
A-Z in the settings
Pinablle quick settings - without app needed
Go to Kid's Corner via a unique code for lock screen
Custom tones for texts, emails, etc. (can be made on phone, same with ringtone, no app needed)
Visual Voicemail not use volume of OS
a Do Not Disturb
