Thank you very much, I adopted most of them.

Yes, this makes perfect sense, a list is much more readable.

The text in the FAQ is now the following:

| 4.5 What is different about Emacs 22?
| =====================================
|    * Emacs can be built with GTK+ widgets, and supports drag-and-drop
|      operation on X.
|    * Font Lock mode, Auto Compression mode, and File Name Shadow Mode
|      are enabled by default.
|    * The maximum size of buffers has been doubled and is 256M on
|      32-bit machines.
|    * Links can be followed with `mouse-1'.
|    * Mouse wheel support is enabled by default.
|    * Window fringes are customizable.
|    * The mode line of the selected window is now highlighted.
|    * The minibuffer prompt is displayed in a distinct face.
|    * Abbrev definitions are read automatically at startup.
|    * Grep mode is separate from Compilation mode and has many new
|      options and commands specific to grep.
|    * The original Emacs macro system has been replaced by the new
|      Kmacro package, which provides many new commands and features
|      and a simple interface that uses the function keys F3 and F4.
|      Macros are stored in a macro ring, and can be debugged and
|      edited interactively.
|    * The Grand Unified Debugger (GUD) can be used with a full
|      graphical user interface to GDB; this provides many features
|      found in traditional development environments, making it easy to
|      manipulate breakpoints, add watch points, display the call
|      stack, etc.  Breakpoints are visually indicated in the source
|      buffer.
|    * Many new modes and packages have been included in Emacs, such as
|      Calc, TRAMP, URL, IDO, CUA, ERC, rcirc, Table, Tumme, SES,
|      Ruler, Org, PGG, Flymake, Password, Printing, Reveal, wdired,
|      t-mouse, longlines, savehist, Conf mode, Python mode, DNS mode,
|      etc.
|    * Leim is now part of Emacs.  Unicode support has been much
|      improved, and the following input methods have been added:
|      belarusian, bulgarian-bds, bulgarian-phonetic, chinese-sisheng,
|      croatian, dutch, georgian, latin-alt-postfix, latin-postfix,
|      latin-prefix, latvian-keyboard, lithuanian-numeric,
|      lithuanian-keyboard, malayalam-inscript, rfc1345,
|      russian-computer, sgml, slovenian, tamil-inscript, ucs,
|      ukrainian-computer, vietnamese-telex, and welsh.
|      The following language environments have also been added:
|      Belarusian, Bulgarian, Chinese-EUC-TW, Croatian, French,
|      Georgian, Italian, Latin-6, Latin-7, Latvian, Lithuanian,
|      Malayalam, Russian, Slovenian, Swedish, Tajik, Tamil, UTF-8,
|      Ukrainian, Welsh, and Windows-1255.
|    * Emacs 22 features support for GNU/Linux systems on S390 and
|      x86-64 machines, as well as support for the Mac OS X and Cygwin
|      operating systems.
|    * In addition, Emacs 22 now includes the Emacs Lisp Reference
|      Manual (*note Emacs Lisp documentation::) and the Emacs Lisp
|      Intro.
|    Many other changes have been made in Emacs 22, use `C-h n' to get a
| full list.
