Couple of things I thing are important are:

Ability to add modules without touching the core code - but modules able to use
functions of core code (& developer guidelines for module development) - mable
self installing - eg CMS looks in a directory and can use module with no
Developer / end user documentation
Spell check
Priverledges (you can see why I wanted the spell check)
check in- check out of pages
Document management
Image Management
Template engine - so the CMS can be easily customised

Those are a few anyway...
