Although not relevant to me any longer:
Revert to definition on my original BoT (pre-CAA) PPL: not 'SEP' but 'SE'. Turbines (including turboprops) , and maybe soon electrics, could be instructor-signed 'differences training' like tailwheel, glass cockpit, etc. Oh, and that BoT PPL explicitly included TMG.
For PPLs, 'Type Ratings' to be not mandatory unless over a sensible MTOM or Vne; including all rotary (helo or gyro). For helo/gyro below these limits, 2-year validation cycle like present SEP.
[I assume all this could be done for flights within UK airspace by CAA Derogation for EASA. Some other things would obviously require either EASA agreement or major change in HMG, particularly Treasury, ideology, so may be completely unrealistic. Latter includes 'joined-up airspace' and 'requirement for CAA (and OfCom) to be seen to make a profit'.
