wishlist: additional E-Dial options in Manual mode

I use Manual mode a lot, and have been noticing the conspicuous absence of several useful e-dial combinations.
Please post your opinions.

E-Dial Programming - Manual mode - Dials
Tv / Av (existing)
Av / Tv (existing)
Tv / ISO <- want!
ISO / Tv <- want!
Tv / +-EF <- want!
+-EF / Tv <- want!

And in addition to the existing Green Button options, I would like:
ISO Shift

If you are using:
-a catadioptric (with a fixed aperture)
-or an M-series lens (with an aperture bezel on the lens but no electronic coupling)
-or an A-series lens not set to 'A' on the bezel
-or anything mounted in reverse or on extension tubes
then the dial that has Av bound to it becomes completely useless. There needs to be options to combine EF and ISO into the mix of possibilities.
eg: Manual mode - Tv as rear dial, and ISO as front dial.
...but I cannot do this at all under firmware K-5 v1.10
