It's all or nothin'!

In the recent Yogscast WvW video, Lewis mentions a "Fast Cast Ground Target" option. This option allows the player to press a ground-targeted skill only one time to cast it at the location of the mouse cursor instead of pressing it once to enter targeting mode and a second time to actually cast. This made me realize how easily two other options could be implemented that I think fans of certain other action MMOs might appreciate. Before I start, none of these options change the functionality of targeting or spell aiming. This is merely a camera preference. The most significant change (the fast casting mode) is already implemented.
When in mouselook mode (holding right-click by default), the cursor is centered and changes to look like a semi-transparent crosshair of sorts. When in this mode, left-mouse allows you to click on things instead of moving your forward. That is, it functions as it does when not in mouselook mode.
Changes mouselook mode from "hold" to "toggle". By default, holding right-click changes to mouselook mode. With this option enabled, right-clicking once enters mouselook mode, and right-clicking a second time exits mouselook mode. That's all this option does.
Which combination of these three options would you use? Is there a way they could be improved? I'd like to see what sort of interest there is in these features as I'll probably make a thread about them as soon as I can once the official forums are open.
