The obvious big blocker is the non-free "data|doc" issue. *Personally*
I do not *think* we currently have a consensus in Debian about this,
*IMHO* we have just agreed to delay the problem post-sarge.[1]

And technical stuff is easy to come up with, too:
* gcc-3.4 (or even 3.5) as default compiler. Requires another C++
transition, and we will find lots of bugs in compiler and packages.
* transition from XFree86 to Xorg.
* 2.6 as default kernel.
