Actually, I'd kinda like a built in WB meter. Ya know... like a WB cap does with your normal meter, but there on its own and one click to make it take a reading. THAT would be cool.

Isn't it easy enough already to move your thumb half an inch to hit the exposure compensation button?
There are other implications. But all add up to the statement that would be many peoples answer to a lot of thing. The Quicker the better.
It would be true that the wheel would be a novelty to many. If the whole system is quicker than what we have now then making the interface as quick as possible would be great.

An AF point select mode that tracks your eye in the view finder and selects the point based on that.

If it were a white balance wheel, you could have each click change between the preset modes, and make it so you could press the wheel like a button, to instantly set a custom WB, and then keep shooting! (I don't know how much I'd use it though, since I started shooting RAW I don't worry alot about WB...
