This is a huge list and I’m not sure everything in that list should be
(and probably I missed some other things that should).

Well, with regard to "should be specifically supported", I'll give you
an emphatic "of course not".  The question is how to make it easiest for
users to do the specific support on their own.  Should we provide markup
functions for the various elements?  Then you can just
\tempo \markup ...
your own mark together.  In that case: how do we do the Midi version?
We could just rely on
\hide \tempo 4. = 60
or similar for that for now.  Not particularly pretty but workable.  But
then we would need to support simultaneous tempo events as long as they
don't produce competing visuals or speeds (separate issue, we don't need
to include this here but it would mean that we can focus on the markup
and not worry about the Midi).
