Everyone of course wants their favorite use case getting extra attention.

Bandwidth optimizing, minimizing foot-print, reducing mallocs or why not just
generally reducing vulnerability surface by reducing amount of code or by
adding rust.

If one of these areas truly are more important than the others I can't tell. I
think they're all important and I spend time and effort on all of them from
time to time.

If any area is especicially important to anyone, I can only imagine that such
a someone would then roll up their sleeves and work on that area, or pay
someone to work on it...
