A lot of these ideas sound cool.
I don't know if new commentary is necessary unless it's going to cover something substatial that wasn't covered in the previous commentaries. If he's only going to rehash most of what was already covered in previous commentaries, then we just may as well listen to the previous commentaries.
The same kind of goes for newer interviews. Don't get me wrong, new extra content is nice. But to me I find it more interesting if any new interviews will actually cover new ground. If it's just going to be Mark Hamill telling pretty much the same stories/memories that he has of making the movies that he told in many previous interviews over the course of the years since the movies came out (for example), then just put the old interviews on there and call it a day. If he has something new and different to share that for the most part he hasn't in the past, then that's another story altogether.
It's kind of like when the Back to the Future movies (pretty much my all-time favorite films) came out on Blu-Ray last year. They have a whole new series of interviews/documentaries on them, which were pretty
cool. But a good portion of them was rather a rehash of what was said on the documentaries from the original DVD release (which were also included on the Blu-Ray). They did go above and beyond a lot of that (getting more interviews from cast and crew members than they did for the original DVDs), and some things went into more detail, so there was a good amount of new material. But the parts where the same people are basically telling the same stories that they already told in the original documentaries, only now they are a few years older... that doesn't exactly make for the most interesting extras IMO.
So, I hope any new commentaries/interviews that they might do for these movies will actually cover new/different ground than any previous ones.
I wouldn't hold my breath on being able to turn of special effects during the movies. I don't see that being realistically feasable as an extra feature.
I actually DON'T want the UOT carried over from the previous DVD releases. If they aren't properly remastered for Blu-Ray, then I'd rather they just not be released at all (my DVDs of them still work fine anyway). Carrying over the existing transfers would just be even more of an excuse not to do them properly later on, so I say leave those off.
And I don't see the point in formating the discs for 3D trailers when the bulk of the content isn't in 3D. It just seems like a waste of special formatting to do so. IF they do decide to do something like this (which I doubt will happen), then hopefully they would put any and all 3D trailers together on one of the bonus discs and not on the actual movie discs.
