Would posting a list of such features be worthwhile? The list

A few big ones:
1. Emacs's internal coding is a superset of unicode . We are using Mule
"6.0 (HANACHIRUSATO)" by Kenichi Handa, National Institute of Advanced
Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) of Japan. This feature makes
Emacs the only option for many Asian users.
2. It is more responsive and stabler because there's continuous effort in
optimising the code and bugs get fixed quicker due to more developers.
3. Extensive and excellent documentation.
4. Most packages are written for Emacs. For example, org-mode at one
time was considering dropping XEmacs support. So was auctex.
The above makes it pleasant and productive to use Emacs.
Of courses others may consider things like gtk gui, XFT, multi-tty, dbus
etc etc big features. There are also many other patches for example
dynamic loading (something like ffi) and lexical scoping waiting to be
merged pending RMS's OK. Multi-threading is also on the horizon.
An 'exhaustive' list:
First new features in Emacs 22.3:
Second, new features in upcoming 23.1 (in pretest now):
