Almost all that you have mentioned has already been changed in Karmic.

Also , the screenshot seems to have been taken from a virtualbox
install. Thats seems to be why the panel icons are arranged wrong.

If its from a virtualbox , instead you can take a screenshot after
creating a new user account in your system , that way you can see how
the default setup is actually meant to be.

A bit late for Karmic. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KarmicReleaseSchedule
Karmic Beta has already been released. So nothing more can be done for

Awaiting your review of Karmic :)
