I've made a couple of language feature requests:

This & Super:

Improving pseudo function call syntax:

But... is this the correct forum for language feature requests? I 
can't help but think there should be a more dedicated place for 
those. Or is it already too late in the game to be even making 
language changing feature requests?

You can write a DIP (D Improvement Proposal). Imo those should get mandatory for language changes and deserve more love, i.e. they should not rot but be either accepted or denied. (After vote or veto from Walter)

We already have this. typeof(this) and typeof(super).

This is not a feature request. It is a feature sketch at best.

You could post them as enhancement requests into the bug tracker.

Sketchy or not, I posted that one as an enhancement request there: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=8381
