    I wish ArcGIS had the ability to add formulas in the default value of fields in a geodatabase (SDE and/or File Geodatabases).  This would allow the auto calculation of default values based on code allowing for very robust data collection and unique ID generation (to name a couple of applications) from within the ESRI toolset without external SDE db hacking.
