Current Live Rig (wait 10 min., it'll change): Carvin V3m head into my Viper combo as a speaker cab, using my TCE G-System via 4CM.

I haven't tried either, only listened online, so beware of the dog.. ;)

I would add:
* a separate resonance control, to simulate damping or not in the box (unless the mic placement does enough)
* maybe add the classic 280Hz or so thump filter (ála the old ampulator)
* simple selection between two speaker sets: normal/warm and bright
* a comb filter, simulating the time delay between two mics, for a more crisp sound
* add separate controls for low- and high roll-offs - low useful for 8/9 strings and bass; high useful with severe distortions
* add a MIDI implementation with simple presets to do on/off on each parameter - maybe make it available both with/without MIDI
* make it available as a dual-channel/stereo version

Further, it would be nice it it was a slim/flat device, especially for fitting into the back of an existing, say, three unit 19" rig not having to make this physically larger.
I know it's difficult arranging space for several connectors on the back, but still, having both jack and XLR does allow using it as a splitter, so..
However, for saving space, single ended and balanced could be combined into a hybrid XLR with center jack.
