You mean accessing the templates through QGIS server ? Because html popups
already are in QGIS :)

+1 for mbtiles generator, as extract feature
+1 for mapcache as dynamic cache management

Decoupling sextante from qgis gui is a must, to be able to run processes from
the command line, or on a remote screenless server, and then for wps too.
We should have a look at PyWPS too, which could be an easy way to provide WPS
services around QGIS API.
