many things you mentioned are done right done with W3C Widgets [1] specification and one implementation of it is the add-on of Opera [2]. There is definitely room for improvements. 

The W3C Widget spec uses HTML5+WebAPI+javascript common apis and makes it super easy to develop extensions [3] for the browser.

It would be interesting to take your list and see what's missing right now and what has already been implemented. For examples things like auto-updates are already possible. [4]
