What's wrong with Northwind?

Reading the wiki & the other discussion here, I see a lot of nice ideas being tossed around, but no real focus.  Let's try approaching this from a different tacks....

What exactly are the deficiencies of Northwind that you'd like to see fixed in this project?

The kick-off announcement seems to limit Northwind's problems to being "It's old" and "It's boring".  What else is wrong with it?
