I dont know if any of these are in any of the TODOs but here goes.
all of these would go under porting issues for Mingw/Cygwin/MS_VC

- Better seperation of win16/32 code.
- remove/rewite win16/9x api dependancy on newer code
- remove/rewrite wineisms from code
- documentation fixes

I think all of this is high priortity but I am biased =)
