I have in the back of my mind that we still experience some difficulties with differently encoded capabilities documents. On the same topic: We have discussed whether it would be a good idea to separate out the SQL dumps for GUI and services. The extreme version being a separate SQL for each module. A list of SQL dumps could be the basis on which to import GUI. I also remember that we still have unresolved issues when updating existing Mapbender installations; has to do with WMS ids being unique and potentially conflicting with existing ones. 

This will probably be too much for the next release but lets not forget this.
