Shades of complexity/tools
I would suggest to go back to simpler and fewer options. As with every program/app, it seems that your highly qualified and extremely intelligent people are antsy to leave their mark on programs. This leads to great idea, however, it also increases complexity. Maybe allow different sheets (like in exel) that allows you to "layer" different tools and abilities on the most basic version. ( like adding different shades of complexities and abilities). That way you allow the people that are not in need of all the complexities to save time scrolling and searching while the geeks can geek out when they need to.
