Your three suggestions are all good. They would need to be addressed by the
person who is redoing the ModDisp.jsp Whoever that might be. I'm not sure if
anyone has taken on that task or not.

The mouse-over text you are referring to comes from the "title" attribute in
the link. Some browsers don't support this, but for the ones that do, its
nice to have. It degrades gracefully for other browsers.

As for the organization of the modules, apparently there is no index on the
database counting the module information. But I'm sure that who ever
redesigns it, will want to sort the info in a more logical way.
