this would be..
-adding missing animations and states
-fixing powerups (aka hammer and fireball cannot be aimed, leaf and tanooki requires tapping to fly and tanooki requires down b to statute, frog physics is fixed)
-adding missing smb3 enemies, bosses, and ai's
-adding missing blocks and background (including the missing 2 water background tiles)
-replacing toad and peach with smb3 toad and peach
While I understand what you're trying to accomplish, you may be also failing to realize SMBX was never intended to be a direct copy of the original games, rather a culmination of various aspects of the past games mixed into something ole' Redigit thought would be fun to play.
As for the physics, SMBX's are primarily designed for speed and flow, such as being able to duck while jumping (which is hella cool), the sliding being a dynamic increase instead of SMB3's static, and the momentum is designed for agility, essentially. Luigi is the exception to an extent as he's a bit slower, but even still, SMBX at its core is definitely about flow.
As for the missing animations and states, there's really not much to add that wouldn't be minute or rather unnecessary at the end of the day. I mean sure, we'd all love the Sonic Mania treatment, but then that becomes a nightmare for custom graphics and the like.
As for the powerups, it offers more versatility to actually control the speed/trajectory of the fire/hammers, making it a bit easier to play, especially in a game where you can get a bunch of fan-made levels. Holding the button down was done for convenience, and I'm assuming the frog physics refer to SMBX "1.4," in which case the physics are garbage, so is the new content, and SMBX 1.4 is essentially irrelevant at the end of the day, anyway.
The missing enemies are a result of ceased development for reasons, same with the bosses and the like, and I'm pretty sure the 2.0 team is already adding new NPCs in the first place.
The missing blocks and backgrounds can all be solved with custom graphics.
I don't even know what the hell you're going for with replacing toad and peach, but the past commentators have beaten me to that point.
SMBX isn't an SMB3 remake. SMBX wasn't just meant to make a bunch of only SMB3 episodes with just mario and luigi doing the same ole' shit over and over again. SMBX was designed for variety, limit-free design, what have you.
There's a reason there's other graphical styles and NPCs in the app, including things like the zelda stuff and metroid stuff, along with... even our good old buddy Mr. Saturn.
You could always have a crack at SMB3 hacking or making a fan project that IS an SMB3 remake, as we don't really have a vast array of good Mario fangames in the mix. (I mean sure Psycho Waluigi/Toad(ette) Strikes Back are alright, but they suffer very badly from being MMF2 games)
