That would be nice.

(3) Organization can be iffy. I use Shelves (easy with Calibre and the metadata plugboard) but each book/fic can only be in one shelf -- there's no way to add it to multiple shelves (as far as I know). So deciding how to set up your Shelves takes some thought. If you only read one fandom, for example, you could set up shelves by genre & pairing; or if you only read one pairing, by genre & rating. Etc. Whatever works best for your collection.
You can put a book in as many shelves as you want, both on the device and via calibre.

From calibre, if the shelf column is a tag-type column, just enter multiple shelf names. Or, you can use multiple columns. I usually have a my own shelf column plus the series column. But, I have used the tags column. Have a look at http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=193184 for how to do this.

(4) Probably just a personal annoyance :-) but there's no title (or author) display while you're reading. I'd love if a future Kobo update could put the title in small font down where the page number is, or at the top like a paper book. I read a lot of fic and sometimes I get halfway through a story and totally forget the title & author!
I know what you mean, but I'm not sure I would give up the screen space for this. I'd be happy with a way to display the details page from within the book. Also, if you read the Kobo forum, there are a lot more calls for getting rid of the page number area so that more space is available for text.
