Read a great article by The Next Web's Matthew Panzarino about the
unusually high amount of sessions labelled TBD at WWDC

I think he counted like 42 session listed as TBD and many are in the largest hall named Presidio.

It's very likely that WWDC could really for a Big Bang this year of technology converging in the iOS Universe.

The usual suspect will be covered like iCloud and Mountain Lion but i'm looking at my Apple TV and I also see opportunity to add yet another stream for 3rd party apps. I'd love to be able to purchase apps suitable for HDTV playback and organize my Apple TV screen like my iPad display (sans folders)

3rd party access to Siri would require many discussions as well.

Panzarino came up with another important point that I'd love to see announced. Better application communication

Matthew Panzarino said:
One other major possibility is the allowance of more interoperability between applications. A cross-communication framework that allowed apps to act more like the web and less like isolated silos, for instance. iOS is maturing, and apps are coming along with it.
Apple's bullish on Sandboxing. Tomorrow is it for the Mac App Store. Sandbox or go home. What if they have plans to announce Sandbox friendly resources to manage many of the issues that currently afflict Sandboxed apps? That would require a lot of Q&A with Apple and 3rd party developers and a big room at WWDC ;-)

iOS 6 and Mountain Lion are being announced so close to each other that it provides a way to sync up the two OS. Of course today we find out that iOS 6 is on a more advanced Darwin kernel (Sundance according to Wikipedia). Could we be seeing a WWDC version of Mountain Lion that jumps to this new Kernel as well? Lots coming...this will be the biggest WWDC ever potentially in impact.

Windows 8 already has this - it's called App contracts.
I like their approach to inter-application communication. I'd prefer iOS offer something similar where I can

A. Keep a file in one app. That app is the originator.

B. Send files from the originating app to other apps for modification.

C. If I need/want save the file in the local app no problem but I can also choose to save the modifications and the file is then updated in the originating app.

D. This whole process must be user enacted for security. Apps would not have any entitlements to do so without my ok.
