Well... if we are talking wishes...
I want to take the GPU (As it is top of the range and good enough for a few years to come), replace the ARM11 with... lets says a Cortex-A9 running at 1GHz. Throw in a big instruction and data cache and produce the whole thing on the next smaller geometry of the ASIC process.
Somehow I don't think Broadcom will give me a design team and a few million to do that.
(On the other hand: If we sell a few million of the current version they might do it...)
There you go!
BCM11311 - Persona™ ICE Application Processor
Persona™ ICE Application Processor
The BCM11311 is the flagship in the Persona® ICE (Information Connectivity Entertainment) applications processor family for high performance multimedia products. Persona ICE enables industry-leading 3D graphics performance and full-featured multimedia (including 1080p video encode and decode) with a superior audio experience, all while maintaining low power consumption.
Designed in a low power 40 nanometer (40nm) CMOS silicon process, the BCM11311 consists of a Dual ARM Cortex A9 at 1 GHz processor integrated with Broadcom's industry-leading VideoCore® IV graphics and multimedia subsystem and a rich set of peripheral interfaces. The BCM11311, along with Broadcom MediaxChange™ software, result in a low-power SoCs and software that cater to a variety of markets and applications in the Enterprise and Consumer segments, including high definition IP Video phones and Multimedia Tablets.

Did i miss something?
As long as we are granting wishes, would it be possible to get a version based on the Tegra 2? Also having a MIPS version would be very nice.
Not sure why you would want one based on Tegra 2 (much more expensive and power hungry, although goodish performance), or indeed MIPS (didn't know people still used those!)! And both equally unlikely I am afraid - Nvidia being a direct competitor to Broadcom and MIPS isn't used in many mobile devices.
