I would love to be able to create Smart Collection that can use various information from Edit History.
For example, I like to create a smart collection to contain all images that has been exported to hard drive (or printed).

I'd say there are the seeds of a very good idea here. I have a question in my mind about how the UI would look if smart collections were "blindly" wired to the edit histories, but this may go very well with the related ideas to have better descriptions, consolidate/merge, structure...

At a minimum, maybe add some of the missing pieces to searchable metadata, like exports and prints (including type & dates...).

Son - In the mean time, you may be interested in DevMeta which makes consolidated develop settings available for smart collections.
