About ABS... that wouldn't be difficult to implement in theory. When the brakes are applied, there's reverse flow of current, so measuring the size of the wave would allow the ESC to vary the brake at a preset point i.e. when the size of the wave becomes large (when the motor has almost stopped spinning) it will reduce the brake. Of course, there is the problem of when the ESC will know if the vehicle has come to a stop or not. 1:1 vehicles have all sorts of sensors which tell the computer the vehicle is still in motion even when all the wheels are not moving; our humble ESCs will not know how to distinguish between locked wheels during motion and a full stop :(
