For CS6, may I suggest to add the ability to add gradient / texture to the "stroke" layer style? This has many uses. The gradient strokes effect is especially popular in designing stylish interfaces.

Here is a screenshot example from the Windows 7 taskbar...

I don't see how that is any different from the stroke gradient support that has been in Photoshop for many years.

Layer FX -> Stroke -> Fill Type Gradient, Style Reflected (reverse gradient as needed)
