Was using the multi-select attributes for some of my product attributes. And found some good features that can be added on to the existing ones -
1. Allow a bulk upload of attribute option values (typically using a CSV file containing all values for a particular store)
2. Usage of multi-select on product pages. It would be better if this is implemented as a Source->Destination box rather than the existing selection list box.
Ive got a beta in the works that uses the magento dataflow process to import a CSV file with all attribute information.. it will do all types (text/select/etc) and all related values. If you are interested in beta testing this for a limited time until it goes stable feel free to pm me or email me at
