There are some cool options, but there could certainly be more cool options. We have a channel-loving cleric in our game who would like another feat or two, certainly.
I offered more feats along the lines of Quick Channel (sacrificing an extra use for empower, a use for widen, or two uses for maximize), but he hasn't bitten. He absolutely loves Quick Channel and did take the channel breath of life feat, though, which might come in handy.
Honestly, though, I think the main reason there aren't other metachannels is that quick channel makes them pretty obsolete. There's little need for an empower or maximize when you can drop two channels in a round. Widen would have been eh to begin with.
I'd certainly accept more channel feats, but I feel like at this point it's largely gilding the lily. There's space for stuff like clearing status effects or moving those healed (friendly equivalent to channel force), but it already does its core role so well I don't feel it needs much.
I'm kind of stunned by the negativity towards channel some people in this thread have, though. I mean, it's the internet, so I should expect that, but I personally point to channel as one of the best improvements between 3.5 and Pathfinder.
