Allow character style to affect tab leaders
I applied a tab leader in my paragraph style in order to force dots to appear between my text and page number in my table of contents. However, there is no way to style those leaders. InDesign manual says: To change the font or other formatting of the tab leader, select the tab character in the text frame, and use the Character panel or Type menu to apply formatting.
This is fine except when you have a really long table of contents and want to format each tab leader. I chose a smaller dot by choosing a light font and had to manually change each line. A lot of work! Can we have a choice of style or character for the tab leader like we do for bullet point marker?

This is a really great idea, i'm working on a phonebook at the moment and, the names are light and the numbers are bold. you can see how much work this can be. it would be nice to set the tab leaders with a character style.
