Birthday, calendar, plugin, core [VOTE NOW!]
Poll

So, what, exactly should be done with the birthday and calendar?

Birthdays and calendar should remain CORE
Birthdays CORE, calendar PLUGIN
Calendar PLUGIN with the birthdays built in to it
Birthdays PLUGIN, Calendar PLUGIN - separate but able to work together

The single post page has all the options - attachments, the sticky/lock/notify me/send announcement - while QR doesn't.

You need single post to create a thread in the first place...

We could have the options in qr. And have the post page used as topic starter or non-JavaScript fallback (eg open link in new tab).

Dunno.
Been there, done that. It makes life interesting. We did a lot of that in SimpleDesk, even down to putting attachments into the quick reply. I'm not entirely sure I'd want to do that again though.

Well, my reticence on the matter is primarily because while it's practical, I find it aesthetically cluttering, because you go from this minimalist editor box that is just a box with a few buttons underneath, to this hulk of stuff - essentially the core post form has been squished to fit inside the main thread view. It ain't pretty.

Try it yourself in SimpleDesk, even here. Find a ticket, scroll down to the reply area, then hit Go Advanced.
