How about some basic/simple things first, which can be readily usable

Good point, wp sorely misses useful archiving. Something like http://www.sonsofskadi.net/index.php/extended-live-archive/ could do a world of good.

To  address  the principal question, all depends on personal  preferences,
experience,  the nature of the blog, and traffic. Thus there will never be
an agreement among everyone.

In  my humble opinion, colophon is not a crucial bit and an E-mail address
can  be quoted in its explicit form. For user navigation and SEO, archives
are  very much necessary and should probably be enabled 'out of the  box'.
In  their absence, people will rarely (if ever) bother to read the 'grave-
yard'  of  posts. Backup plug-ins are also important. Many neglect to  get
copies of the database because of proficiency barriers. Do not forget that
nowadays,  most  bloggers are not IT-savvy. There is no pain greater  than
the  loss of all blog content. That's why I consider these to be must-have
functionalities, which don't require much 'fiddling'. Bad behaviour -- be-
ing a third contender -- likewise.
