Here's a quick once-over of the stuff you mentioned. I'll look at the
rest in more detail, but here's what I know off the top of my head:

For that matter - shouldn't we pre-populate the image with index data if
we're going to include Beagle?

IIRC this is coming (as with the "Welcome to Fedora Core 6!" page) soon.
Although I'm not sure if we have/want a LiveCD specific one.

Yep. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/234765 
Added to the LiveCD tracker:

Again, I believe this is coming along with the bookmarks and Firefox

get dropped from the LiveCD?

That's a known bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/225168
It's on the F7 LiveCD tracker.
