I'm not a fan of transmogrification system at all. I find it important that what you see on the outside is representative.

RE: What dungeons and dragons class would you like to see implemented?
I'd like to see a large array of different area of effects. Yeah, circular, straight line, etc, but get creative as well.
Have a magic missile type spell that fires a projectile out of each hand, and then each follows a sine wave path, creating two repeatedly crossing paths, but when they're farther out from each other, the space in middle doesn't get hit. Have (particularly non-linear) projectiles have simple physics so that if they hit something along the path to the target, that's where it ends up.
Rain of fire? Yeah, several meteors coming down in a circular aoe, but don't just do uniform damage in the circle, have each meteor do it's own collision damage.
In general, just don't do sparkly looking spells presenting things that aren't what they are affecting.

And it shouldn't force people out of their homes/enterprises, but instead allow the victors to set and collect taxes. In fact, this is exactly how it mostly happened IRL throughout human History!
I really like this idea as a way to make property ownership and wars feasible and fun.
I've been playing Haven and Hearth, which is very similar (I think they shared management/development once upon a time) to Salem. Being able to wander the wilderness, finding an area I like, and just setting up camp is a great feeling. They don't quite have housing done in a way I like (instancing), but every other component that you build feels good (perimeter walls, all the large tools and such you use, etc).
Freeform housing is something that's definitely a desirable trait in a game. My favorite has historically been that of Ultima Online. People can create some bad designs that don't look great though. I'd say it'd be nice if such a style of house creation was built, players could design their houses, and then submit it to the mayor / governor / secretary of housing for approval. This could help build cities that fit a theme, or at least prevent garbage designs from getting built.
As far as user uploaded material, you'd probably also want to use a reviewing system, but frankly I could do without, especially for the hermits who wouldn't have someone regulating what they put up.
