Very nice, i must say.
Have you had a look at the Mod 5272 ?
It has USB and instead only 2 UARTs, less timers and less digital I/O, but 2 MB flash (instead of the 512k, that the 5282 has).
They stripped the I2C and A/D inputs also. But if you look at the specs, it looks quite ok for most applications.
