A note on the threat thing: there's a UI option in the beta to get the percentage shown on your target's frame in the base UI. I don't remember which option it was (I was just playing around with it and it appeared.) But I found it easier to keep track of there. If the custom unit frame addons manage a way to make this more visible, it could work well, though I imagine most people will stick to Omen.

Actually blizzard did implement a bar type UI for the threat meter, but for some reason have it disabled:http://i33.tinypic.com/2lx6ka8.jpghttp://i33.tinypic.com/10pu9er.jpghttp://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=9956669655&sid=2000

I think what alot of people miss about the built in threat meter is that it is not about the UI. The real magic is that server threat information is now accessable via the LUA API. This means that all addons have full access to actual, precise threat values instead of having to play a guessing game. Count on Omen to provide a useful frontend to this new API.

That's true, but at the same time it'd be nice for them to have a basic option to have the % value shown at all times. It would avoid the whole "ZOMG U JUST PULLED AGGRO" "Gee, thanks" aspect of the whole thing.
