I''m planning to run the main and jib halyard aft, as well as the topping lift. Besides that, I will leave a couple of open spots on the deck organizers and clutches for a two-line reefing system. Anything else I might be forgetting?

Hmmm ... don''t have a Cunningham, never fly the Spinnaker. I''m trying to keep it to a bare minimum for complexity/cost: do you think you really need all this in the cockpit?

When the seas,weather gets nasty and you''re shorthanded or singlehanding you will be glad all the controls are in the cockpit and a winch is close to controls.

I did the same thing over the winter - you won''t regret it! I''m going to add a cheek block at the bow for a preventer on the boom. Nothing worse than the boom swinging 180 degrees while flying wing-on-wing!

If your headsail is on a furling system, it may not make a lot of sense running it back to the cockpit.

Even if you don''t have the extra controls, the outhaul is a line that you should adjust regularily, so it would be a plus to have it aft, and the same with the boomvang.

I''m surprised that you include the boom topping lift - if you adjust it once when the main is trimmed tight you should be able to forget it for the season ...
