What I personally miss (not necessary Xubuntu's task to fix/add):
* better out-of-the-box bluetooth support with GTK PIN helper
* PIM synchonisation (opensync? although multisync has a really, really 
bad GUI ;( )
* Better default CD/DVD Burner (Too bad Brasero has so many Gnome 
dependencies; otherwise cool burner)
* Simple GTK video editor (like MS MovieMaker)
* I've heard a lot of good stuff 'bout Printerdrake
* Claws Mail (only if the interface gets a _major_ facelift; not easy 
enough for the inexperienced user)
* Default enabled FUSE stuff: fusesmb, fuseiso, etc
* Other default media player (VLC? - I can't get used to gxine)

This is what I tend to add/change to a clean Xubuntu installation, but 
the Bluetooth and sync stuff are really a pain in the behind to set up.
