Both of these are important.

I was glad to see that in audio editing/music making software FLAC gained a lot of support in the last couple of years. I'd say right now most support at least importing FLAC.
But 32bit float is used a lot in audio editing, so FLAC could definitely improve there.

Also, I remember reading once that FLAC is too loosely defined (compared to ALAC where the rules are more strict regarding number of channels etc.). Don't know much about that stuff myself, but if it's true it's worth looking into. Hardware/software manufacturers want a reliable standard to work with.
EDIT2: found it

In seriousness, I wonder whether LithosZA is correct that there’s little point in supporting very high bit-depths and sampling rates. Josh already noted that the main utility (not necessarily use, thanks to the pyrite-ears community; rather, usefulness) of such parameters is in editing/engineering, and while I can conceive of a scenario in which one wants to backup a project without having its uncompressed files take up so much space, I wonder whether that really needs to be a concern or at least a priority. But then again, would it be relatively trivial to add it and keep everyone happy?

if it doesn't break current decoder then why not? Main users of HD feature will be almost certainly home users (at least thats what i imagine), as a video guy its hard to imagine to have a 30s clip which is 1.x gigs in size and then even care about audio size part.
