Suddenly, overbounces, strafe jumping, rocket jumping... in Quake too.

On topic: The node placement should only be disallowed for full, walkable, opaque nodes, not non-solid nodes or nodeboxes (even if walkable). If that's not possible (or maybe it makes the gameplay too complex), just let nodes be placed anywhere and add suffocation damage, as a penalty.

The time lapse speed can be set to 0. I have permanent day in my singleplayer worlds. And on some building servers, it's always day (or day is turned on when someone requires it).

It depends on the game you play. If you're building something, advanced commands like WorldEdit are extremly useful. If you want to play PvP or RPG, they might be disruptive. But then, there are better worlds/games for first person shooter kind of games and the like. This one's about building nice structures. Everything else...is a nice addition.
A list of my mods can be found here.

The logic is more important! (would not change the game much, but would be nice)

I must disagree. Gameplay is more important than logic in game..

I'm not modding and/or playing minetest anymore. All my mods were released under WTFPL. You can fix/modify them yourself. Don't ask me for support. Thanks.
