This one is rather easy to define: just improve navigation with the keyboard.
Again, this one is simple. Right now, xfce4-appfinder uses exo-open to launch desktop entries. This was easy to implement, but we should really check if there is startup notification support in the desktop entry and if so, make use of it.
A vague idea of this was presented on http://gezeiten.org/post/2009/07/Appfinder-Ideas. Something like this could greatly improve the usefulness of the appfinder and integrate it more into the rest of Xfce. It could then also serve as a replacement for xfrun4, maybe with an alternative, stripped down interface.
Note: Nick also has some code for an improved appfinder for 4.10.
