I think that there are a lot of things in the list that do not warrant precious,scarce screen time.The stormtroopers ARE clonetroopers with a different armor.Maybe cloned from a different source(s) but the concept is the same.Do you really think that Lucas has spent so much screen time to explain their origin in a film to add further explanations in the following one?It would be a waste of time.
The Confederacy will probably be defeated at the beginning of the film in order to leave space for the rest of the plot.I hope that we will see at least one big battle but frankly I would not be surprised if the closest thing to a battle we will see in the next film will be a lightsaber duel.
Palpatine crowning himself emperor?maybe but I think that this will take place in the time between episodeIII and episodeIV, the same for the founding of the rebel alliance,which is a direct consequence of this.If he does not crown himself emperor in the aftermath of the clone wars he will do this a few years later,when his power base will be definitively secured (like Napoleone III,who was elected president of the republic in the 1848 and proclaimed himself emeperor with a coup d'čtat in the 1852).The Jedi purge will probably start but it will not be completed in the film.
